Edworthy Falls Hike


  • Edworthy Falls



  • June 22, 2024



  • Ed, Dave, Craig, Janet, Oak, Erin, Mike, Brenda, Peter, Lisa, Kim, Kuma, Roger, Carolyn



  • 62 km south of Highway 1 on Highway 40
  • park in the Elbow Pass Day Use Area parking lot
  • the trailhead starts in the middle of the parking lot by the toilets
  • at Elbow Lake follow the Elbow Pass Trail left (west) left and follow the logging road for 2.7 km
  • after the meadow after the lake, look for a large rock pile where the trail to Edworthy Falls is on the left
  • you can’t see the falls from the trail so you follow the trail by the rock cairn on the left for 200 meters and then you scramble down to view the falls



Degree of difficulty:

  • 300 meters of elevation gain
  • 11 km
  • the trail has a 125 meter gain over 1.5 km to Elbow Lake, which is the only tough part as the rest is relatively flat
  • the hike took us three and a half hours but we added on a short side trip to Rae Glacier before the snow got too deep



Interesting notes

  • there are views of Tombstone Mountain, Elpoca Mountain, Piper Pass, Powderface Mountain and several others in the area
  • this was our first time doing this trail, and I heard about it from my optometrist, Dr. Gene Edworthy
  • the name Edworthy Falls originates from the Edworthy family who was one of the forefathers in Calgary and who Edworthy Park is named after
  • in 1924, while on a backcountry horse trip, George and Myrtle Edworthy discovered what was to become known as Edworthy Falls by bushwacking toward the sound of falling water
