Hike to Flood Falls, British Columbia
Canada › Flood Falls Trailhead
Added by Kaila Walton
A short hike to the base of this very tall and not super popular waterfall is worth it.
You can see the waterfall up high cascading down to the ground from where you park. Once you get to the trailhead and park on the side of the road, follow the trail toward the waterfall. The trail is a bit rough in spots with lots of roots, so be careful where you step. On the way to the falls, the forest is full of trees covered in moss and ferns everywhere. It is a magical site!
It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to get to the base of the waterfall, where it flows down from the mountains into a small pool below.
The falls flow from a small basin on top of the ridge as well as avalanche deposits which accumulate in the upper half of the ravine. The falls plummet about 1200 feet to the valley floor in 9 prominent drops, almost all of which are vertical or almost vertical. From the bottom of the falls, however, only the lower 250 feet of the falls can be seen, which is still an amazing site.
