View Alex's Recording Once you pass Turner Valley the Hwy dead ends at the trail head parking lot so you can’t miss it. This trail is one of the roughest I’ve been on, starts out not too bad then bam not great.

Tons of exposed roots and “washboard” style ruts from all the horseback riders. At about the 4.5KM marker you have to are to the left and cross a small creek to keep on the trail.

View Shane's Recording A long, but enjoyable trail with a mixture of packed earth, mud, rock, riverbed, and tree rooted earth covered in pine needles. The tall falls are beautiful while the surrounding mountains and hills are picturesque.

Trail is easy to follow, but first you must cross a stream to start the hike. Lots of loose rocks roots and open holes.

Alana young reviewed Elbow Pass Trail to Tombstone Campground and Lake Fairly easy river crossing at the beginning, it was less than a foot deep but very cold.

Trail was fairly easy to follow except when you get to the dry river bed. The falls and sights along the way are worth the minimum elevation gains.

Highly recommend sandals for crossing the river at the start! View Amanda's Recording The trail has a very gradual incline with various types of terrain.

Have to cross the river at the beginning and hike along the creek for the duration. It took us about 2 hours to get to the falls where we enjoyed a chilly dip and lunch before beginning on the way back.

Lots of horse poop and people traffic was fine! Recommended companies offering horseback riding tours and trail rides in the Canadian Rockies including Ban ff, Can more and Kananaskis Country.

The Covid-19 precautions worked well for the time we were in proximity to the staff. The facility has so much more to offer than what can now be open due to the pandemic.
