Canyon Falls via Canyon Falls Ct


22 min from Downtown Kelowna
1845 Canyon Falls Ct, Kelowna, BC V1W 4A2
Crawford/Canyon falls is an absolute gem of Kelowna and is a must-see for everyone. Prior to the end of Summer 2014, this trail required a very steep descent down ropes. However, the City of Kelowna has gone in and completely revamped the trail. It is now substantially less steep and doesn't require any ropes. Though, due to flooding in 2017, the trail was closed due to instability of the cliffside. It remains closed now in July 2018.

After arriving at the first waterfall, continue up the boulder in-front of you (unfortunately the ropes have been removed), and continue walking along the river for another 100 meters or so. This will take you to the bigger waterfall. The top of this final waterfall can also be accessed via a short rope descent further down the trail at the top of the hill.

GPS Notes
We have often color-coded our GPX tracks. While it is not always the case, we have tried to use the following convention on our newer maps:

Green/Blue: human-verified by our volunteers.
Purple: overgrown trail, bushwhack, or on private property.
Red: default color or not reality-checked
Yellow: Road
Other Colors: May have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources.

While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors. Use at your own risk.
