    Table of contents

    Hike along Tershishner Creek to the humbling Tershishner Falls. The short and easy trail is manageable for all and makes for an excellent stop to stretch the legs and do some sightseeing with the whole family. The trail is very close to the Abraham Lake campground, so this trail can get quite busy. It isn’t bothersome since it’s so short but be warned that this isn’t the quietest option along Highway 11.
