An easy hike that ends at Gold Creek Falls. Drinking water is only available during camping season. Take caution near the falls - the pool above the falls is a frequented swimming hole and can be dangerous.

Great beginning trail for all ages. The falls are beautiful, and there is a beach area along the river that is great to hang out at. When you reach the waterfall, DO NOT cross the barrier/fence. The rocks are slippery and it is extremely difficult to climb back out if you fall in. A man was washed over the falls in April and was missing/presumed dead.

Nice easy walk on gravel path to the falls. Pit toilets at trail head and one when you reach the falls. Trail started to get busy after 11am and parking lot was completely full by noon when we returned.

Nice to traverse the barrier and get on top of the falls. Rocks are slippery so take care. Go explore the rest of the Golden Ears Provincial Park, a beauty.

Very easy trail but the scenery is awesome. Old growth forests, creeks and waterways. Gold Creek falls is powerful in the winter and best to stay behind the boundaries. In the summer the falls slow down to create these amazing pools that are great on a hot day

Nice easy trail, wide and kid friendly. Brings you right up to the falls, where you WILL get wet. Round trip at moderate pace for us took 1 1/2 hours.

Amazing waterfalls with such power. I bike to the falls on a rainy day in about 25 mins going slow.. Walking takes 45.. Hope you enjoy. Totally worth it!
