Discover three hidden wonders of Revelstoke's rainforest.

Revelstoke is located in a unique temperate inland rainforest. In short, that means there is a lot of water here, leading to some truly spectacular waterfalls. All are accessible by a short hike. Visiting the waterfall trifecta is a great activity in Revelstoke and not weather dependent; in fact, the falls may be at their best when it's raining. Grab your wet weather gear and head out! All three falls can easily be ticked off in a day and are also accessible by snowshoe in the winter.

Sutherland Falls is located in Blanket Creek Provincial Park, a scenic 25 minute drive from Revelstoke on Highway 23 South. Once you make your way into the Provincial Park, the falls are just a 5 minute walk from the parking lot. The falls drop over 10 metres at the bottom of the stunning and impressive Blanket Creek canyon. Look for fish hanging out in the pools below!

Begbie Falls allows some hiking options. You can access it directly from the Begbie Falls campsite, or via the Begbie Bluffs climbing area parking lot. The first option requires a short (but steep!) walk downhill to the falls. The second option is about 5 km round trip via the Bluff Trail. This is our recommendation as it follows Begbie Creek and delivers great views en route. Once you've reached the falls, make sure to continue down the trail to the Columbia River for great views across the valley towards Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

Take a ride on the Revelation Gondola, bringing you up to 5,500 feet. From there, the one-way hiking trail Split Rock Falls is about a 30-minute stroll from the gondola. The green-rated trail is 600m in length and has very little elevation (13m).
