  • Beautiful Myra falls. Trail is well maintained. Price Creek trail needs some clearing and trail maintenance.
  • We visited in early September, and the park was very, very quiet! Even the volunteer-run visitor centre was closed. A lot of the park seems to be aimed at backcountry multi-day adventures, but there are a number of short hikes around Buttle Lake - from Lower Myra Falls to Lupin Falls - all of which you can easily complete in one day.
  • If you're driving down by Buttle Lake, try camping at Ralph River Falls and take the short drive over to Myra Falls. Beautiful rock formations and when the water's not too high one can climb over and amongst the falls. The hike from the trailhead to the falls is only about 1k and not too hard.
  • A few great trails in a beautiful park
  • Really a nice remote place for camping and get away.
