Explore Stotan Falls
Canada › Stotan Falls Bridge
Added by Kaila Walton
Stotan Falls is home to several big and small waterfalls to explore -- and great swimming holes in the summer months.
This area is a beautiful spot along the Puntledge River in the Comox Valley. It is great for photo opportunities, sun bathing and swimming.
There are a couple of ways to check out the many waterfalls in this small section of river. The first is a trail to the right of the bridge (you can park on either side of the one-way bridge). Take the trail all the way down until it ends and you'll get a nice view of one of the two larger waterfalls at Stotan Falls. The second way is take the short trail on the left side of the bridge and walk down in the river.
The rocks are flat and the river in most parts is usually only a couple inches deep. Make sure you take note of the water levels and signs along the river that notify you when the water levels are higher than normal. They are red and are posted when the dam at the lake is getting released.
If you're in the area and don't want to go alone, find me on Instagram and send me a DM. I will gladly you give you a tour!
