Hike to Cataract Falls at Forks of the Credit Provincial Park

Forks of the Credit Provincial Park - Search Nearby - Added by Thomas Ostapchuk

Waterfalls, fishing, and scenic hikes make Forks of the Credit Provincial Park a worthy afternoon hike. Pack a picnic and a friend anytime of year.

The main parking lot is off of McLaren Road on the north-east side of the park, with an honour-pay system. Multiple hiking loops are well marked, with clear "Falls this way!" arrows on every sign.

There are some steep down/up walks on wooden staircases that lead to both the river fishing spots and falls-view lookouts. In the summer the wild grass fields make a great place for a picnic. In the fall, come for the stunning leaves changing.

Breathtaking At Fall

I used to go to Forks of Credit every year with my family when we lived in Canada. It was a tradition to go at fall. I must say I think it's the most beautiful at that time because when you get to certain points of the trail, you get a great view of the sea of trees around and you can see the autumn colours. There are so many breathtaking sites as you hike along the trail. It is definitely an all day trip for there is a lot to see. The falls are certainly a must-see! I highly recommend visiting Forks of Credit if you are in the area or willing to make the drive up. It will not disappoint.(especially at fall!)
