  • A must 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 :)
  • It's always a real treat to walk the trails at Nymph Falls whether it is the summer or winter. The sound of the rushing river is either meditative or passionate. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy being in nature.
  • 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 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.
  • One of my all time favorite places in the Comox Valley. The walking paths are excellent, the off leash aspect is so great for us and our very well behaved dog, and on a hot day nothing beats dipping in the pools. Go on weekday though as it can get pretty busy on weekends.
