    Directions to Trailhead

    The Perry Creek Trail is a 2.4 km out-and-back hiking route near Cranbrook, BC, that will take you through the forest to visit a vantage point overlooking a waterfall. Along the trail, you will experience a peaceful forest atmosphere as you hike alongside the creek towards the powerful rushing water of the falls. Timing your hike for the spring will make the falls even more impressive with the higher water levels; however, the trail can sometimes become washed out, making travel difficult.

    Route Description for Perry Creek Trail

    Hiking the Perry Creek Trail is a fun experience in the vast forests northwest of Cranbrook that will take you right up to the edge of a roaring waterfall. While the route is easy, its proximity to the creek can often see the trail become washed out or frozen over with ice, so make sure to wear proper hiking footwear and bring microspikes, depending on the time of year.

    The trail sets out from the side of the road and enters into the dense forest. As you hike through the tranquil woodland atmosphere, you will cross over a log bridge and eventually arrive at the edge of a gushing waterfall. Take some time to appreciate the power of the flowing water over the magnificent rock formation of the falls before heading back along the same route to return to the trailhead.
