Located in Hope, BC, Flood Falls spectacularly drops from high above onto the rocks near a small pool of water. The waterfall is quite high with a narrow band of water and it's just a short walk from the parking area, just off of Highway #1.

From the trail head, follow the trail into the forest and walk up the well worn path along the creek bed. Depending on the time of year you hike the route, the creek bed is often dry. The path weaves through the forest as it gently gains elevation.

Within 15-20 minutes, the sound of Flood Falls can be heard and just a few more steps, the waterfall can be first spotted between the trees. Follow the trail as it arrives at a clearing, before walking up a rocky mound in front of the waterfall.

Make sure to use caution when standing near the base of the waterfall as rocks can cascade over the falls from the top.

After you have enjoyed the waterfall, follow the forested trail back downhill, staying near the creek bed until the path exits the forest next to the road where you parked.
