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.

Well maintained trail. Easy. Falls are pretty. More of a walk than a hike.

Easy, very pleasant walk in the woods with some pretty views of the mountains here and there. The last time I did it was 2 days ago and I was attacked by horse flies. It took forever to shake them off and I took a different route back. Same thing there but not as bad. I guess it's the season. Can become busier mid-day/afternoon.

This is a nice walk in the park. If you are looking for a challenge there are other hikes close by that would give you a better run for your money. That said, the scenery is nice and in the spring the waterfall is raging!

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
