Put your fitness to the test and walk for an hour on a steady uphill trail through virgin forest for the first segment of this hike. Once at the top, terrain becomes flat. Enjoy this for a bit, because a walk downhill introduces a trail mixed with portions of both flat and hilly areas before arriving at Marianne River. Grand Fond Waterfall is now a close distance away.

Swim leisurely in a natural waterfall and pool, but be careful when swimming at the sides of the pool where it is extremely rocky. Wear shoes as a precaution.

Afterwards, trek downstream Marianne River through rocky terrain. Slide on the natural water-slide, swim through beautiful pools and small gorges and gasp at lovely vistas which are definitely a bonus on this trail.

Arrive at the popular “3 Pools” and have fun. Note that the return hike from '3 Pools' is just 20 minutes away from the Spring Bridge.
