Cascades Conservation Area Reviews
We were in the area over the Christmas holidays and stopped in. It's a pretty walk and fun to see the snow and ice covered river! Lots of room to run around and we enjoyed ourselves despite the snow! more »
Great hiking trails for all ages. Close to town for easy access. Fun place to cool off in the river on hot days. Go check it out! more »
Nice network of trails. Well marked. The yellow trail to the cascades is long enough for an adult to stretch her legs and short enough to be a good walk for a five year old. Kids, adults and dogs on leash will love scrambling over the rocks heading upstream along the rapids, in nice weather. Good spacious parking lot. No water. Outhouse is minimal and grotty but usable in an emergency. Long distance runners can head downstream to Centennial park, but you're on your own finding the connecting trails!
Beautiful conservation area. The trails are well maintained and easily marked. There is a map at the parking lot to help you decide which route you'd like to take. The Cascades themselves are breathtaking and worth the visit alone. It's extremely buggy however, so come prepared with proper clothes and bug spray.
