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.
