From the Burstall Pass trailhead follow Burstall Trail to the third (3rd) hiking arrow sign post. Look left and there is a large cut line with a path ascending. After the hill is crested the path turns into a road.Just before the creek there is a "T" to the right marked with a small cairn. This path leads to the first falls in ~1 km. Depending on how high the creek is try to get down to bank before trail veers off too high. Very steep.Enjoy these falls and there are more farther up the creek but you will have to go back to the "T" and cross creek. We spent most of the day on south side of creek exploring some back trails but mostly a waste of time. Never got to see other falls but west up the valley you get peeks of the French Glacier.

Directions:

From Canmore follow signs to Nordc Center and from there go ~41 km on Spray Trail (Hiway 742) to Burstall Pass parking lot (across from Chester Lake P.L.). This is a gravel road so be careful.
