Follow the main trail for a moderate, all-season 10 km round trip hike that is a perfect introduction to the front canyons of the Castle. The trail is on an active service road that gently ascends the valley between Pincher Ridge (on the right) and Drywood Mountain (on the left). After a small amount of elevation, you will arrive at a stunning 3-meter waterfall and a large pool.

Please note the trail past the falls is not maintained.

Follow signage and exercise caution while travelling on roads.
