Rating: 2 stars.
Distance: 400 m return to the falls.
Description: A very short trail that leads to another great set of falls. I camped at this site for a Revelstoke Secondary School Grade 11 Physical Education class. I only recently made the effort to drive into the site a couple of years ago. Still a great site (although there was a bit of garbage laying around) with an old Cabin that would not be recommended for sleeping in…unless you like rats! Bring a fishing rod, canoe and spend the night.
Directions: Drive south of Revelstoke on Highway 23. Just before the Shelter Bay Ferry Launch turn right onto Shelter Bay FSR. Drive past the Eagle Bay turnoff on this road that roughly parallels the Arrow Lake. If you start heading uphill too much you have probably taken a wrong turn. 26 km from the start of the Shelter Bay FSR you will see a road going down to the left. Follow this to the end.
