Crooked Falls in Squamish

Crooked Falls is an incredible waterfall along the Sigurd Creek Trail in Upper Squamish. The trail is a peaceful and moderately challenging trek through the forest. The Sigurd Trail reaches Crooked Falls at around 490 m elevation. You get some unique views of the waterfall as Sigurd Creek tumbles down the mountain, in a crooked fashion.

There are two angles at which to view Crooked Falls. The first is from the side, tucked against a cliff wall. The second is from an outcrop just in front of the falls, which provides an up close (and wet) vantage point.

Crooked Falls is usually hikeable year-round.
