This is a cool little jaunt off of Meadows in the Sky Parkway that leads to a great little waterfall and rest area. A short hike and a great place to stretch your legs!

To get to Broken Bridge Trail head follow the switched back road of Meadows in the Sky Pkwy up through Mt Revelstoke National Park. Make sure to get a trail brochure at the park gate this will help as the directions are easier to understand while reading the map on the brochure.

Make your way up the road and on the map you will see points of interest labeled "A" "B" "C" etc. as you drive up. You are more than welcome to stop at these (in fact encouraged) but to get to Broken Bridge Trailhead, park on the corner of the switch back just before getting to "D" on your map (this is switchback #10 if you are counting). 

There is decent parking here but if it's busy you can park on the road. The trailhead is well defined as is the path, and from here it is about 5km (~3mi) to the "Broken Bridge".

This area just got reopened on Mt Revelstoke so it is fairly new - the trail could be better as some sections had some decently steep drop-offs. 

Take a minute to explore around the falls before heading down - there is a little bench to rest your feet as well.
