    Directions to Trailhead

    Route Description for Lower Bugaboo Falls

    The hike to Lower Bugaboo Falls is a quick excursion near Invermere that will take you through a beautifully scenic stretch of woodland terrain on the way to experience the falls themselves. While the route is largely flat, some small inclines can become icy later on in the season and may require microspikes to traverse.

    The trail is heavily forested and follows closely alongside the flowing waters of Bugaboo Creek, providing a relaxing atmosphere as you make your way toward the rugged rock formation of the falls. Approaching the cliffs above the falls will produce a spectacular view over the rushing water; however, you should be mindful of the steep drop-off and stay clear of the edge. After taking in the majesty of the Lower Bugaboo Falls, head back along the trail to return to your vehicle.
