    Nymph Falls is one of the most beautiful places on Vancouver Island -- and there are just a few. The walk from the parking lot through the forest is a trip through a natural museum, with huge firs and...  more »

    We walked on a trail to Nymph falls. Not a long walk from the parking area. Saw quite a few people swimming and sun bathing. There were a few benches on the beach and on the trail that you could sit o...  more »

    We love to hike. Great spot and lovely falls. We didn't swim or sunbath but lots of people took advantage. Miles of groomed trails.  more »

    Favorite place to walk my dog's, since dog's are always allowed off leash - so please be prepared to encounter dog's without a master immediately in sight. Well groomed trails, with some wheelchair accessible area's. Numerous seating options throughout the park, often with tranquil views. Spectacular views, sunbathing rocks, waterfall's, swimming hole‚Äč's (when the river is low), picnic tables, mountain bike trails, lush beautiful forest. Autumn you could possibly witness the Salmon jumping up the falls on route to their spawning place. One can imagine that they might even meet a Elf from the "Lord of the Rings" while walking through the woods. Little bit of heaven on Earth. Parking can be a problem during summer months, recommend you arrive early if you want a good spot.

    We really enjoyed watching the start of the salmon run in early October. Watch out for Google directions! We ended up on the opposite side of the falls from the viewing area, and had to backtrack.

    Gorgeous wooded pathways. Well maintained. Fully worth the short walk. Difficult to find via the roadway or Google maps. We asked directions along the way.

    Amazing spot to go for hikes and hang out on the rocks in the sun. They recently put in some stairs to get to the rocks at the bottom of the falls.

    Beautiful place to go for a walk. Trails are easy so don't be intimidated! The falls and the pools below are amazing. Can't wait to come in the summer and stick my feet in the water.
