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!

Wondering about private property signs

Hello, I have been to this spot years ago and was heading there this year to find multiple private property signs on the left side of the trail. I have looked at the map of the Marsden Face Conservation Area that runs north east from the trail and wasn't quite able to see if the Nature Trust conservation land is included in those falls and the trail along the creek to them or if it's private property. Please let me know if anyone has more information about this. I'd love to find out more details :) - my email: joceym@live.ca

Loved it!

Short walk, no people what so ever around and such clear water! A real hidden gem!

Nice Little Waterfall
