  • Nice walking trails and the falls are beatiful. Great place to cool off in summer and shelter of the trees makes for casual walks the rest of the time. Paths are well groomed.This is an off leash dog friendly place
  • A must see visit, especially in Summer. The trails link all the way from the dam at the top. Personally I prefer doing them with someone or while it's a bit 'busier', since the local fauna (bears, but also Cougar) might just be watching you :)
  • Beautiful walk and the trails are easy. You can unleash your dogs and let them enjoy the park.
  • 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​'s (when the river is low), picnic tables, mountain bike trails, lush beautiful forest. Autumn you could possibly witness the Salmon jumping the falls on route to their spawning place. One might imagine that they could meet a Elf from the "Lord of the Rings" while walking through these woods. Consider it to be a little bit of Heaven here on Earth. Parking can be a problem during summer months, recommend you arrive early if you want a good spot. Two public parking lots - if the main parking lot is full - turn left on Forbidden Plateau Road - follow road approximately a kilometer. Angle parking in both lots. Or park along the roadside, it's a fairly busy road - so please be cautious/careful/aware with your children &/or dog's when exiting/entering your vehicle. NOTE: Correction to Nymph Falls Goggle Directions: - PERCY Road is the road you take from the highway or other Comox Valley County countryside roads to get to Forbidden Plateau Road.
  • Wonderful nature playground!! Water in pics is usually only a couple inches to 12" deep on flat bedrock, so you can walk all around the river, set up a lawn chair even and sit in the river. Water was a nice temp esp on a hot day. There are pools dug out in the rocks you can sit in. Beautiful step falls. Path to and from is very easy.
