Sproule Creek Falls

Beautiful waterfall only minutes from Nelson. Duration: 600m return. Elevation: nil. Time: 20 minutes (+).

Sproule Creek Falls is a beautiful but relatively unknown waterfall just minutes from Nelson, BC. Despite it's ease of access, it is not written about in any of the guidebooks nor online - so here it is!

To reach the falls, head out of Nelson on highway 6 toward Castlegar. After crossing the bridge over Kootenay Lake at Taghum, take the first right onto Reibin Road. Follow the road down to the parking lot next to the creek and you will see an unmarked path leading up the meadow on the right hand side of the creek (looking upstream). Simply follow this path for about 300 metres until you reach the fall!
