Central Okanagan / West Kelowna
60 min driving from Downtown Kelowna
After driving past Bear Creek, the adventure to this trailhead takes you on a well maintained forest service road for approximately half an hour. The hike is short, but the Christie Falls trail results in a beautiful waterfall, and a small cave to explore!
The hike is a slightly difficult following a path through a forest that suffered during the 2009 Terrace Mountain fire. It is flagged for direction and also includes a steep decline. A cave is accessible by the waterfall, and is ideal for climbing. The area is frequented by climbers and is used during the summer and winter for the sport.
This trail should not be done until at least June 1st due to its high level of elevation and shade. More than likely access will be blocked by ground snow cover.
