Moses Falls Trail

Rating: 3 stars.

Use: Hiking.

Difficulty: Easy.

Distance: 100 m from the bottom parking to lower falls. 500 m from the top parking to lower falls. 

Description: Moses Falls is hidden from view from any road in Revelstoke so it is generally not a well known spot. The trail itself is nothing special but the falls are quite impressive for being so close to town.

Directions: Drive North to the Moses Falls parking area on the Westside Road, past the dump 6.1 km from the Hwy 23 South intersection. The trail goes down a steep hill a short distance, then intersects with a gravel road that heads down toward the river to the southeast. Keep going across the road and pick up the faint trail heading into the trees almost directly across from where the trail hit the road. The rough trail heads down the creek adjacent to the falls. Steep and slippery in sections. Option two is to follow the road down and to the right, then take a left at the bottom of the hill This leads to the base of the falls. Once down at river level you can walk down the kokanee spawning channel and try to catch a glimpse of the fish.
