Route Description for Goldstream Falls
The Goldstream Falls Hike offers explorers the perfect way to explore this beautiful corner of British Columbia and experience the true beauty of the rainforests that characterize the landscape in the area. Setting out from the parking area, follow the trail to the north and into the dense canopy of the forest. When you reach Niagara Creek, head left to cross the highway and meet up with a picturesque waterfall on the other side. Make your way over the creek and head south through the moss-covered trees until you arrive at an old gold mine that stands as a relic of the region’s gold mining past.
Continue south to loop around the Goldstream Campground, where you will arrive at the Goldstream Falls at the southwestern corner of the trail. Take some time to explore the area and admire the cascading water of the falls before heading east to skirt alongside the southern edge of the campground on a route towards the Prospector Trail Viewpoint. From here, you will have a nice sightline over the forested landscape and the rushing Goldstream River that dissects it. Make your way north along the trail to enjoy the last bit of temperate rainforest terrain before you arrive back at the parking area where you began.
