Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area, Bragg Creek

(120+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Follow the water's lead to the rushing waterfalls of Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area. A small set of waterfalls leads to the main 6 m (20 ft) drop. The height of the exposed walls fluctuates with the water's vastly changing water level. Surrounding the falls is a 1 km (0.62 mi) long hiking trail that starts and finishes at a nearby picnic area. The site suffered significant damage following a powerful flood in 2013 that affected the picnic area and paved walking trails, but the natural beauty shines through. You'll likely see kayakers, canoer, and fishermen here. Our Bragg Creek vacation trip planner makes visiting Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area and other Bragg Creek attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
