About the Park

There are 3 kilometres of maintained trails that wind through this majestic old growth and second growth forested park. Throughout Douglas fir, cedar, hemlock and maple trees are lookouts that provide views of the two waterfalls, an expansive gorge and a quiet canyon. The lower pool provides an enjoyable swimming spot on a summer’s day when the water levels are low. Spawning salmon can sometimes be seen in the autumn, but there is no fishing allowed in the park at any time of the year.
