Cypress Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"When the snows on Black Mountain at Cypress Mountain ski area melt, they come rushing down Cypress Creek and over the two sets of falls in Cypress Falls Park. These tumultuous waterfalls are the highlight of this short and interesting route, but the silent costar is the forest with its old-growth trees, mossy beds, and endearingly hap-hazard network of trails.

This is the British Columbia rain forest at its best and most accessible. A rushing creek feeds two impressive waterfalls, and misty airs nourish lichens and mosses that hang from 300-year-old trees—a thick forest canopy that shields you from wetter weather. But it wasn’t always accessible. Some historians, like Elspeth Bradbury in A View through the Trees, speculate that these old-growth trees only remain because loggers couldn’t access them."
