Troll Falls, Kananaskis, Alberta

Here’s another waterfall post! This hike is for the most part is quite easy. Of course, there are some tree roots to cross over and a few small inclines, but nothing major.

Me!

According to the Alberta Parks site the total length of the hike is 1.7km one way (approx. 3.4km total). The main reason I love this hike is of course the waterfall at the end. One time when we went my mom and I also followed the trail up above the falls and saw a few ‘mini-falls’. To get up above the falls does require a little bit of scrambling, but it is fun and totally worth it.

How to get to Troll Falls…

LOCATION: Head South on Highway 40 to the Kananaskis Village turn-off. Follow the road to the Stoney Trail Day Use Parking Area. The trailhead begins on the other side of the vehicle-gate, leading to Hay Meadows” (Tourism Canmore Kananaskis).

As with any hike remember bear spray, snacks, sunscreen, water, comfy shoes, and of course your camera! As always, remember to check the Trail Report.
