Route Description for Three Falls Trail
The Three Falls Trail is a unique hike in that it has three different and equally beautiful waterfalls- Shadow Falls, Nepopekum Falls, and Derek Falls- all packed into a hike of only 9.3 km. The route sets out on the Strawberry Flats Loop, a trail that will provide you with a wealth of wild strawberries for snacking if you happen to hike in late July. From here, the trail follows fairly closely alongside Nepopekum Creek until you reach each of the three successive viewpoints along the trail that overlook the falls.
The trail itself is well-groomed and, although it gets a bit narrow in places, it is still wide enough to travel on with children or dogs. Towards the end of the trail near the falls, the route becomes a bit more steep and technical, with several small boulders that hikers will need to traverse. These are easily manageable and offer a nice variation in terrain along the trail. After you’ve witnessed the beauty of the falls, head back along the Three Falls Trail to return to your car, making sure to pocket a few extra strawberries for the ride home.
