Elk Falls, Vancouver Island

Elk Falls has long been an attraction for people visiting the Campbell River area. Two years ago, the local Rotary Club funded a suspension bridge and new trail to view the falls. This is proving to be a popular spot with locals and tourists. It provides clear views of the Falls as well as a look down the narrow canyon that follows from the Falls.

The walk to the bridge from the brand new parking area takes you through a forested area, along easy trails. 

To get to the bridge itself be prepared for some steep stairs. The stairs take you down further to a viewing platform (almost directly across from the old platform) which gives an amazing view of the Falls and the river before it. 

Of course, the star of the show is Elk Falls, on the Campbell River, the third and largest of a series of falls (Deer and Moose being the other two).

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Live It!
