    Route Description for BX Falls Hike

    The BX Falls Hike in Vernon, B.C. grants visitors and locals seeking scenery outside of the quintessential Okanagan lakefront views with the ideal outdoorsy escape. Once you set foot on the trail, a thick forest will envelop you. If you’re starting from the Tillicum Road trailhead, you’ll only have to walk a short distance to the waterfall. You can choose to descend the stairs to reach the base of the waterfall before making your way back up the stairs and onto the trail again. Feel free to turn around to head back to the parking lot or continue along BX Creek, crossing over some bridges and attacking more stairs.

    The distance may be short, but the stairs will get your heart rate up! This out-and-back route is easy to follow, so you won’t have to worry about getting lost in the lovely forest.

    If you’re attempting this hike in winter, the stairs can be slippery. It’s recommended that you wear microspikes if there’s ice or snow on the trail. This hike is exceptional year-round, providing a cool oasis away from the hot Okanagan heat in the summer and a winter wonderland during colder months.

    Insider Hints for BX Falls Hike

    • Hit up BX Press before or after your hike from some excellent ciders and woodfire stove pizza!
