Road from Lick Creek to Falls parking area is accessible by 4x4, if you don't want to ride in. Downside Very long ride. 46Km return on my bike computer. Long, rocky hills on the last third of the trail. Comment Bike computer showed 5hrs 16mins total time on bike, but it didn't count for a good 20 minutes after we left the falls. Plan for it to take a good 10-11 hours if you plan on hiking down to the bottom of the falls and having a few breaks. I won't ever ride my bike in again, but I'll be back with my 4x4, which is allowed up until the parking area. It's about 1km walk to the falls from there on a nicely maintained trail. Bring a comfy saddle, you'll need it.

They are the tallest in Alberta. Downside Some of the hills are pretty long. Especially the last one leading down to the falls. Comment The ride was great. We burned through a lot of water, but we brought a filter to refill the camel backs at the river.

Way too many steep inclines in the last 2 hours to the falls and back. Only saw one other group all day, so quite isolated. Comment Our trip Sunday took 3.5 hours in, 4 hours back. Bring lots of Powerade (we ran out of liquids after about 5hours). We would call ourselves moderate athletes in reasonable shape. One grizzly encounter but after we started driving home.
