Just an hour out of Calgary, on the outskirts of Kananaskis Village and Nakiska Ski Resort is a short little hike to this absolute gem of a spot, Troll Falls. I got there about an hour before sunset and had the whole place to myself. I saw a couple of people on my way out there walking back but that’s it. It was magical.
You can tell the place got hit fairly hard in 2013 from the floods, with trees still arched from the impact, while others were not so lucky and have been uprooted. Despite the damage, it gives it a feel of a secret garden, hidden in amongst a large rocky canyon that wraps around and protects the whole area. I felt like being in a rain forest.
There are more falls along Marmot Creek that I am looking forward to checking out… possibly in winter when they start to freeze. Would be great to return and give a different perspective.
