09Jul2017 - Cascade Falls Hike
Packed up our camera gears and hiked a short trail up the base of Cascade Falls. This is a steady climb with lots of loose gravel along the trail (proper hiking shoes is recommended as the climb may be at times easy but the descend later may be a different story!). The hike is short but rather steep as we climb up quickly to the base of the waterfall. Once up the base of the falls, you are greeted with a panoramic view of the valley, the highway, the town of Banff and Mount Rundle on the background.
Perhaps, as its name implies, water cascades down the mountain cliffs, roughly 300m down. The base of the falls is usually run over with avalanches until late spring.
