This is an easy hike along a well-marked trail that is suitable for all ages. The trail is wide and well maintained and there are a few hills. A good time to take this hike is in the late spring so you can watch for rainbow trout jumping up the falls.

Cedar Falls Conservation Area is located at the east end of Broome Road in O’Connor Township. Just past Kakabeka Falls on Highway 11/17, turn left on Highway 590 and left again on Garbutt Road. Proceed along Garbutt Road for 3 km and turn left (east) on Broome Road. Follow this dirt road for 1.5 km to its end at the parking lot.

  1. I love this spot. Beautiful falls and I was lucky enough to see many fish trying to jump up the falls.

    The trail is a bit washed out though due to heavy rainfall. I couldn’t complete the whole length of it due to the fallen trees and erosion.

    Nevertheless very nice.

  2. Sine this is in our neighbourhood, we hike this trail at least once a year, if not more. It is a very enjoyable, easy hike with a pretty falls at the end.

    Great for families with school age kids. In the summer, when the water level is lower, there is opportunity for the kids to splash around and explore. If you are in the Kakabeka area, this trail is worth checking out.

  3. Thanks Jeff! This is exactly why I created this website. I will try your additional section next time I am at Cedar Falls.

  4. I stumbled across this website yesterday and it is fantastic. My wife and I snowshoed into Cedar Falls after reading about it here and loved it. We also found a trail on the other side of Cedar Creek a little downstream from the falls and decided to follow it. It ends up meeting up with a much wider trail (well travelled by snowmachines) which leads back to Broome road about 800m west of the original trail head. Makes the total round trip closer to 4km and is quite nice. I didn’t see any indications that we were on private property so I thought I’d put it out there.

  5. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say
