A flat, paved trail that follows along the Yoho River before turning to take you to the base of Takakkaw Falls. Ideal for wheelchairs and strollers. Because this is a paved trail, it is ideal for anyone yearning for an up-close view of Takakkaw Falls. It’s meaning in Cree—magnificent—provides a pretty good description of the view from the end of the trail. Although the sight from Yoho Valley Road is quite spectacular, the short walk to the base of the falls is worth the time spent—even if you’re anxious to head off on a longer day hike to Laughing or Twin Falls.
