    The Wilson Creek Falls Trail is a 2.9 km out-and-back route in Goat Range Provincial Park that travels along a heavily wooded path to arrive at the majestic water of the falls. Once you reach the end of the trail, you will have an amazing view of the powerful and impressive waterfall, as the water gushes over the rugged rock formation.

    Route Description for Wilson Creek Falls Trail

    The Wilson Creek Falls Trail is a hidden gem of a hike in the West Kootenay region that will take you through a beautiful stretch of densely populated forest on the way to the rushing waters of Wilson Creek Falls. While the trail may not be very long, it offers prime views and the chance to cool off in the mist of the waterfall on a hot day.

    Heading out on the trail, follow it north through the forest on a route that will eventually run parallel to Wilson Creek. The trail has some steep sections, as well as rocky/root-covered portions, where you will need to be a bit adventurous and climb over/under trees to reach the creek. If you are travelling with children, keep them within close distance and take your time along the trail. Reaching the water’s edge, you will have an amazing picture of the rugged waterfall and the torrents of water that continuously flow over its rocky edge. Take some time to relax in this serene location before heading back along the same route.
