I came here in February for a winter hike and it was a very refreshing hike. The paths are well marked, but be warned some of the stairways are not cleaned. They were filled with packed snow, so you should take care going down them....More

Two- hour long walking trail with nice views of the falls. The path's marked with pins and signs, there are few slippery points. No public transportation, rent a car.

A short drive from Yellowknife to a basic non descript parking lot is the start of the walk to Cameron River Falls. The trail is in excellent condition and the view of the falls at the end of the walk is worth the effort.

This trek has everything from high rocks to wooden bridges. Beautiful magistic walk through the woods and into the falls itself is so beautiful. A bridge that takes you to the other side for another look at the falls up close and personal.

Yoyo at NorthStar Adventure recommended it. Dan was our driver and Alice was the guide. The walk was not difficult, and the scenery was nice.

I wouldn't advise taking dogs on these trails, may attract some wildlife!
