Falls Lake a fantastic pit stop

This three-kilometre round-trip hike brings you through a well-fortified forest trail complete with wooden staircases and boardwalks.

The trail, which is lined with wildflowers in the spring, follows a small rushing creek. A short 30-minute hike brings you to the head of the creek as it flows from Falls Lake.

If camping is your thing, this tiny ice-cold mountain lake does have a level wooden platform available on which to set up a tent, as well as some bear-proof disposal bins and a unique outdoor toilet.

If you do want to enjoy a loop, however, you can follow the road past the toilet, which will bring you back to the parking lot.

HOW TO GET THERE -- The turn-off to the parking area is located about 50 kilometres east of Hope on the Coquihalla Highway. Take exit 22 (Falls Lake) and drive under the tunnel, then follow a short paved road to the parking area and you will see the trailhead beside the creek.
