Hike to Nairn Falls

Added by Shayne River

Stunning Waterfall. Easy Hike - 3km roundtrip with minimal elevation gain. Fun Day Trip. Easily Accessible. Camping nearby.

From the turnoff of Highway 99, there is a parking lot specifically for Nairn Falls Provincial Park. There are maps all over the place, and they will direct you to the trailhead for a short hike to the waterfall. There is a blockaded section at the waterfall for viewing due to the danger that the waterfall poses with such a strong flow of water.

This is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon, or just as a detour along your drive from Whistler to Pemberton. You can also camp at the excellent campgrounds, just be sure to make a reservation before making your plans as the sites can fill up quickly due to the close proximity to Whistler.

Good for a quick stop

The falls are cool, and the short hike is good if you need to stretch your legs. If you're short on time, it's definitely skippable.

Extend your Hike

I love going to Nairn Falls for a quick hike, and the camping is great here too! I sometimes park at One Mile Lake and walk in from there to make it a bit longer.

Beautiful waterfall

The coolest part about this waterfall is my mom has the same maiden name, Nairn. Anyways, most of the hike is relatively easy until you get to the last couple hundred feet of it as it gets pretty rocky so just watch your step and you should be fine. The falls are beautiful and thunderous well worth a stop if you are driving along Hwy 99.
