Hike to Lady Falls

Canada Lady Falls Parking Area and Trailhead

Added by

A beautiful 90 foot waterfall plunging into a deep canyon. 

This waterfall is a pretty stellar sight. Located in one part of Strathcona Provincial Park, it plunges about 90 feet from a small slot canyon into a wide deep canyon. From the view point you can feel the mist from the waterfall on your face. For a different perspective, there is a small trail just before the viewing platform that leads up to a different viewing area of the waterfall. From that viewpoint you can see up the narrow canyon. 

This walk is well worth a pit stop if you are heading out towards Gold River or as an awesome day trip to fit in a couple other waterfalls in the area. Lupin Falls and Myra Falls both flow into Buttle Lake and are short hikes as well. 

The parking area for the waterfall is located on Highway 4 about 51km(31mi) west of Campbell River. There is no cell phone reception in this area so make sure someone knows where you are going to be and how long you'll be out there for. Google map directions can be found here.

As always, be aware of your surroundings because Strathcona Provincial Park and Vancouver Island has all kinds of wildlife including, black bears, cougars and wolves. 

Pack List

  • Camera
  • Tripod
  • Water and Snacks
  • Highly recommend carrying bear spray anywhere out in the BC wilderness especially if you are by yourself.
