Route Description

Get the whole family outside for a short meander to a scenic waterfall in the Okanagan Valley’s Hardy Falls Regional Park! Follow a series of eight bridges to a picturesque waterfall tucked into rocks intertwined with flora on this easy-going, family-friendly hike in Peachland, BC. The Hardy Falls Hike is an out-and-back route that directly follows the path from the parking lot to the waterfalls, making it difficult to get lost and lose the trail.

After following the bridges to reach the waterfall, you can take some time to sit on one of the benches provided and marvel at the waterfall before returning the same way you came. Kids love the bridges and waterfalls! And if you go at the right time of year, you may be able to catch kokanee spawning.
