The hike to Flood Falls is a short out-and-back trail that travels along a 1.0 km forest path to reach this scenic rock formation. Located just outside of the city of Hope, this hiking route is a popular option for families due to the short length of the trail and the big wow factor of the water gushing over the falls. The volume of this waterfall surges during wetter months of the year, so it might not be as prominent if you hike the trail during the heat of summer.
