    Directions to Trailhead

    The hike to Trent Falls makes use of a 2.1 km out-and-back trail that follows closely alongside the Trent River to arrive at a beautiful cascading waterfall. Although the trail is perfectly suited for hikers of most skill levels, access to the falls requires navigating a slightly steep section of trail that might slow travel, as there are rope installations to help with the descent. Even so, this is a fantastic family-friendly adventure that will allow you to explore the temperate rainforest landscapes around Courtenay.

    Route Description for Trent Falls

    The close proximity of the Trent Falls to the highway makes it an easily accessible and popular route through the rainforest that produces some amazing views. Setting out from the parking area at the side of the highway, head south to make your way under the overpass and continue along the coursing river. The trail will wind through the beautiful rainforest atmosphere that is filled with the vibrant green colours of its diverse plant life before arriving at the roped section that will lead you down to the falls. Carefully make your way downhill to arrive at the cascading falls that spill over into the serene pool below. After exploring the area and taking in the views, make your way back along the same path to return to the Trent Falls trailhead.
