Twin Falls Gorge Trail in the North west territories

Twin Falls Gorge Trail

Perch yourself atop some of the best views in the territory by taking the Twin Falls Gorge Trail. Following the rim of the gorgeous Hay River Canyon, this easy eight-kilometre hike begins at the community of Enterprise and leads south through majestic boreal forest. 

The path links together the three main destinations found within the marvellous Twin Falls Territorial Park. Hikers can take a dizzying spiral staircase down to the lip of Louise Falls’ cascading waters, and take in the awe-inspiring sight of the mammoth Alexandra Falls, where the trail reaches its end. 

Along the route you’ll find interpretive signage, viewing platforms, campsites and day-use areas, sitting benches and, of course, incredible views of the yawning limestone chasm of Hay River Canyon.
