A great easy hike to one of the most beautiful waterfall settings I have ever seen. Dog friendly trail. Can climb over the small waterfall and keep climbing up to the top of the falls. Well marked. Highly recommend doing when in Fernie.

We hiked Mt Proctor coming down the fairy creek trail. Bite of a grunt. 3:30 to summit but a fantastic hike and well worth the effort. Starts at visitors center and is very well signed.

A good and quiet hike to end the day. The trail was very quiet and upon reaching the falls we found it to be extremely lush with vegetation and trees.

What a fantastic yet busy spot. The walk what perfectly suitable for our family and dog. Plenty of spaces to pull in to get out of the way of other hikers/bikers. You wouldn't want to have earphones in as it appears to be favourite of...More

Well worth hiking to the falls. Only downside is that the area is going to be chopped up into home lots soon.

This trail is just over 4 km. So around 1 1/2 miles. It is a nice easy hike. Not challenging but fun.yy
