Wonderful hike in the forest to witness the power of nature. We weren't disappointed. The falls are beautiful and the hike through the forest serene.

Even on a misty spring morning the park provides some amazing views of the fall and surrounds. With a choice of routes you can walk anything from 1.5 to 10 miles. Some of the paths are quite steep. But it allows you the time to enjoy the simply breath taking naturalness of the trees and countryside. Not for city lovers... More

We had a wonderful walk through the woods and visit to the new suspension bridge. It's a safe, magestical atmosphere, so much beauty and must have a camera!

Day one we drove by without realizing how magnificent the short hike would be. Facebook friends and a local person we met said we had to explore this and so we did. The Falls are awesome and then to top it off with a short walk on that suspension bridge made our experience memorable. Only suggestion I would have for... More

Wonderful day trip here with friends and family, and we walked up to the waterfall and crossed the suspension bridge a couple of times, in order to take some photos. Not too crowded on the bridge crossing, and a wonderful experience. The Capilano Suspension bridge in Vancouver is longer and view over the bridge is more spectacular. Good experience, but... More

Beautifully maintained campsite, with many sites on the river. If I were a camper, I'd come here. Elk Falls also contains several hiking trails for all fitness levels. A great place for family and friends.

Beautiful Hike along the river. Sometimes has the possibilities of a bear encounter. We hiked this trail along the river, at times there are incredible views of the river and then you wind back into the woods for a while. Lots of uphill but nothing too difficult. We hiked to the falls with the suspension bridge, then found out there... More
