Cliff Falls in Kanaka Creek Regional Park

Cliff Falls in Kanaka Creek Regional Park, Maple Ridge, is a great place for a weekend outing with the family. On sunny and rainy days alike, Kanaka Creek is a peaceful area filled with easy walking trails.

Kanaka Creek runs through a beautiful forest of Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, and moss-covered maple and Western red cedar trees. The Cliff Falls waterfall is the main attraction to the park. 

The full guide for the Cliff Falls hike can be read here.
