The final destination for the day was Canyon Falls. Like the other stops, you access this trail from a residential neighborhood. It’s pretty obvious from the cul-de-sac where the start of the trail is as well. When planning this trip I was a little confused as some sites said the trail was closed. We went just to make sure and the trail was indeed open! This trail was, by far, the most demanding. The first picture shows Crawford Falls (more on this later). According to my watch it was about a 60 meters (200 feet) descent to the bottom. There are a number places where you will be using steps, either man made, well placed rocks, or just natural. The scramble down was pretty easy and I’m proud to say I was able to make it up too although I was huffing and puffing at the top. Luckily there are some benches there if needed.
Once you are down in the canyon it is a pretty easy walk to the falls. We chose a slightly harder route that followed the creek. Climbing over the rocks was fun. At one point I was able to cross to the other side for some pictures with a different perspective. The falls were well worth the trip down. You could walk right up to them where there was a pile of boulders that worked as a great place to set up the tripod for pictures of the falls. This was Canyon Falls. If you are REALLY adventurous you can follow a trail to the side of the falls to Crawford Falls. This path will require you to climb a rope up a sheer rock wall. We both deemed this well past our skill set. This path will take you to Crawford Falls (as seen in the first picture). I think there is another route to Crawford Falls from above but there was a very serious looking “Do Not Enter” sign. We figured this was there for a reason so we headed the sign and turned back.
The entrance to the trail is at: 1842 Canyon Falls Ct Kelowna, BC
