Ingraham Trail, Yellowknife, Canada
Cameron Falls Yellowknife Reviews
quick leisurely hike Mar 31, 2009
Cameron Falls is located within Hidden Lake Territorial Park, on the Ingraham Trail. It is approximately 50 km east of Yellowknife and a 20 minute hike. There is a parking lot and porta-potty available at beginning of the trail.
It is well-marked and relatively easy considering I'm a novice. You will trek mostly over rocks, some pretty steep but there are also a few steps along the path.
I went once during spring when the falls was still half-covered in snow. The other time was during summer just to check out the falls in its roaring glory.
Apparently there is a bridge that you can take to go across but both times we were there, we spotted a grizzly bear across the river feasting on berries and decided not to become his main course. I have not heard of any bear incidents and had always seen fellow hikers along the trail.
I plan to come back for the third time and view it from the other side and have a closer look of the falls.
