Herald Provincal Park - Margaret Falls
June 2, 2017: Margaret Falls Trail closed indefinitely
Spring run-off conditions and mudslides in the canyon have completely destroyed sections of this trail. Bridges have been torn from their footings and the river course has been re-routed in many sections. The trail and facilities will require an engineers assessment and estimate prior to any remedial work being completed, which will take place once current water levels begin to recede. There is a high likelihood that the trail will not be available for public use this season. Please be advised that we will post future updates as they become available. Please visit the BC Parks Website for the most up to date information.
The trail leading to Margaret Falls passes through a rock chasm that feels like an enchanted forest. The unique and sensitive ecosystem of flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park's natural heritage. The water from Reinecker Creek cascades down a sheer rock face creating a natural shower. If you look carefully you may be able to see the hidden cave in the rock directly behind the falls.
Getting to Margaret Falls is an experience in itself, whether you are driving from the Trans-Canada along the Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road or arriving by boat at Herald Provincial Park, you will see amazing views of impressive Bastion Mountain and of course the ever-present Shuswap Lake.
