Our favourite place for a stroll and to get some earthing in; we go at least twice a week to rejuvenate, breathe some fresh air, enjoy a walk alongside a river, watch what is in bloom, and see people fishing.

We almost turned back when we got to the power plant, but just inside the gates a right turn took us to the parking lot for a beautiful forest trail leading past a series of water falls. It's about a 2 mile loop to see the falls and return to the parking lot...steep in places, but worth every step.

nice walk to to a waterfall on a hot day should be a great view from the new suspension bridge being built.

great trails around beautiful, stunning falls. We particularly liked that there are few restrictions on where you can walk around so you can get up close to the falls.

This park has several nice hiking trails over looking falls. The trails are fairly easy and mostly in the shade of large trees. The park is only about 1.5 miles outside Campbell River, easily accesible.
