Distance 0.3 km return, height gain 4 m, easy
At the far end of the parking lot a short paved trail goes down and to the right to a viewpoint over Elbow Falls. The branch to the left goes slightly uphill with views of the falls from various points along the way. It ends at an unsatisfactory viewpoint. Better viewpoints are on a lower trail that is not wheelchair accessible.
Start: Elbow Falls Day Use area
Difficulty: Easy on paved trail
Note: A paved trail runs most of the way parallel to the parking lot.
If you want to get away from the crowds at the falls, head down the paved trail (signed Service Road) to the right as you enter the parking lot. At the bottom is a memorial bench for John Graham with a good view of the river.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
