Two sets of beautiful waterfalls that you can view from the bottom and top. Close to the city. Quick hike / Photo Op: 1.5km round trip.

Located on Bellevue Creek, the trailhead to find these falls is hidden in suburbia. Take Gordon Drive to Dehart Road to Crawford Road to Westridge Road to Canyon Ridge Crescent and park on Canyon Falls near the fence.

Follow that dusty trail into the canyon along the ridge. About 10 minutes on this trail you’ll see a steep path that descends to the lower falls, which is assisted by a series of ropes. Watch for splinters as the ropes are showing their age. Once at the bottom, hike upstream to find both the lower and upper falls. Climb back up to the main trail, and instead of following the path back to the car, follow that initial trail further to get a birds eye view over the upper falls. Best in spring with the snowmelt but the falls run all year long and everything can be seen at a good pace within an hour if you want.

Afterwards, treat yourself lakeside with a glass of local wine or a Tree Brewing beer at any fine Okanagan establishment.

Pack List

  • Hikers
  • Water bottle or camelback (it’s hot and dusty in the Okanagan for the summer)
  • Some Okanagan wine
  • Cherries if they’re in season
  • Camera, obvs.

Very basic and straight forward hike. Perfect for local "getaway" in the Okanagan area. Little ropes to repel to the base of the waterfall, all around good/average scenic hike!!!
