    I live next door to this park. It’s like having a couple thousand acres in my back yard. Have walked the trails for 28 years, over 5000 times. This is the very best nature park in Canada, mostly as nature found it for the past thousand years or so, with huge trees and the wonderful free flowing creek.

      This hike is a beautiful way to spend an autumn morning/afternoon. There is minimal elevation, the trails are clearly marked and you walk alongside the creek for most of it. We walked from the parking lot to the fishing hatchery and back within 3 hours. It doesn't normally take this long, however, we stopped to take plenty of photos. This is a must-do for families or anyone wanting to be outdoors, but doesn't want to put in a lot of effort with regards to climbing mountains or going over technical terrain.

        This is not a hike but a park. If you are going to include this in a list why don't you make a park section? This should not be on the list. Are you from there? These parks are everywhere. lol

          Went on Aug 6th, I would not recommend going if you are interested in seeing the waterfall, as the water levels are very low, so you can barely see anything at all.

            The hour hike that is posted is from the fish hatchery parking lot to the falls. Not knowing we had to start they're we just parked at the kanak regional park by the field and it was about a 5 min walk to a bridge were there was a few point of the falls, but you could not go down to it. If you go past the bridge to the picnic area and go left up the hill there's a path you can walk down to the creek where. You can put you feet in. Dogs are allowed but on a leash and just read the warning signs that their not allowed in the water. Overall great short walk for a nice cool off

                  We did this trail yesterday and it was was a great easy walk (gentle up and down wide trail with a few bridges) after having done Brothers Creek Loop the day before. Not knowing there were natural pools to swim in (no mention of that on here), we will be going back for a picnic and to take a dip in the creek pools. There were lots of people taking in the natural pools below the picnic area and even further up the creek.

                    This is my favourite short hike and short trail run. If you're into trail running, this is a great run if you're pressed for time because it's not very long but the trails are fairly hilly (a bit of a challenge). The falls are really neat but can only be seen from a few spots. The trail is well-maintained and looks like it's had some recent improvements (late 2013 - improvements to stairs and trails). I've walked or ran Cliff Park over a hundred times and I never get tired of it.

                      We did this hike today September 3rd, I would not recommend it if you really want to see the falls. By now the water bed is pretty low and the falls are next to nothing. Still a nice walk just to get out of the city for a couple of hours.

                        We did this hike a couple of weeks ago, and I got some terrific pictures. When we got to the fish hatchery, there was an attendant who spent quite a bit of time with us giving us insight into the importance of the salmon and its habitat. He was obviously passionate about what he does... and was certainly interesting talking to him. My only disappointment was not seeing the falls from "below." I had seen a couple of videos of guys in kayaks going over the falls, and just assumed that I would see the falls from the same angle as the photographers. We saw a couple of teenagers who had scrambled down the cliffs, but to us, that was foolishness! This is a good family hike.
