Overview
More
Cameron Falls Trail is located within Hidden Lake Territorial Park, on the Ingraham Trail. It is approximately 47 km east of Yellowknife. There is a small parking lot with pit toilet facilities, at the start of a 20 minute hike along a well marked trail to Cameron Falls. In winter the falls are frozen right over. In spring, melt-waters roar under the ice. Water levels in summer have been known to drop low enough to allow walking across the falls above the overhang. And in the fall the changing colours of the leaves are always a good reason to bring along your camera. Attractions & Points of Interest: It is possible to hike upstream from Cameron Falls to the Cameron River Ramparts Waterfalls, a distance of 8 or 9 km. The trail is not well developed, but the river is relatively easy to follow and the route is obvious. If you choose to follow the north (far) side of the river, there is a foot bridge at Cameron Falls, which also offers access into the rest of Hidden Lake Park. You will have to re-cross the river at the Ingraham Trail bridge at Cameron River Crossing, a short ways upstream from the Ramparts. The park offers access for canoeists to the Lower Cameron River Canoe Route, one of the Ingraham Trail Canoe Routes.

Although the falls are mostly frozen and parts of the trail are a bit slippery, it is still a nice 3hrs winter activity (including the drive from Yellowknife). There is a small flowing section on the right hand side of the falls even in -30C...More

If here for a short or long visit make time for this spot. It’s more than an average hiking ability however. With steep slopes that can be very slippery if wet and steep stairs. The views and hike are terrific.

Gorgeous waterfalls at almost any time of year (although during parts of the winter you might be looking at just snow); beginner/easy walk/hike.

Hi Ela. I think in summer it's only supposed to take 20-30 minutes each way. I'd estimate it's 3/4 of a mile to a mile tops each way. We hiked it in the middle of winter so the snow made it a bit trickier. Probably took... More
