High Falls Creek – Squamish Valley Hike

High Falls Creek – Squamish Valley Hike

High Falls is amaaaaazing! Seriously, this is my favourite waterfall hike near Vancouver far. I think it is because the High Falls Creek trail feels so wild as you need to pull yourself up cliffs with chains, and it just feels like real wilderness.

The path is easy to follow, and not too exhausting if you are used to Vancouver’s North Shore Mountains. If you fancy a quiet hike- this is probably not the best hike for…
