Make sure you have good directions to the falls as it can be a-bit confusing. A short hike once you get there but fantastic scenery so bring your camera.

EVERYTHING you need to know about the infamous “Christie Falls” in West Kelowna. First of all, Google Maps- “Christie Falls Trailhead” then load the directions on your phone on the satellite view and you’re good to go. There’s an old blog of “the amazing Christie...More

Love it here! Great hike that is quite strenuous at times, not the best for the elderly as it has a part where you need to rapel down. Worth it for the waterfall and the view.

The falls were just beautiful but please take the warnings seriously. This is a very remote trail...well off the beaten path. Come prepared and then use good judgement on attempting the climb down to the falls. The drive to get there is a bit rough...More

This is a waterfall worth visiting. You have to drive on gravel roads, last bit is pretty rough, then park and walk in about 30 min to top of waterfall. Then hike down and you can walk behind it. Very beautiful. If you need directions...More

Christie Falls are hard to find but very worth it. The hike down to the falls is difficult in parts but there's a rope to assist you. Make sure you're wearing good shoes and take some water.

The drive to this area as people in the past have mentioned is quite long and bumpy, I would suggest a truck or hefty SUV. It took us about an hour from thr core of Kelowna. The hike is really beautiful, minus the burnt portions....More

Picture driving a little farther than you would like... down a gravel backcountry road. Taking care not to take the wrong turn at the many Y's in the road. Once you read the trailhead you are face with a recently devastated by wildfire forest. Stunning...More

It's quite tricky to find the right place as it follows a gravel mountain road with may splits and turn. We found an online forum with the best directions. As no google map will take you there.

Yup. The decent to the falls is quite steep in places so they may need a hand. But for 95% of the way it is no problems.

It gets narrow the last 1km or so and there's one last little hill that you may bottom out on. But as I say, you'd only be adding a 1km or so to a great hike.
