16 Stunning Waterfalls Around Vancouver

If you need any inspiration for spot to snag a #waterfallwednesday photo, look no further. This list will guide you to the best waterfalls around Vancouver. They vary greatly in difficulty. Some are quick walks from a parking lot, like Shannon Falls. Others are difficult hikes, requiring proper preparation and planning for the outing.

Waterfalls are great to view any time of year, but late spring is usually when they are flowing in their full glory.

Admiralty Point Hike

Admiralty Point Trail, near Belcarra Regional Park, is an easy and peaceful hike. The trail has minimal elevation change, making it a great choice for families. As a sea-level hike, it’s also a nice hike to do in the shoulder seasons when other hiking trails are covered in snow.

The main attraction of the Admiralty Point Trail is, not surprisingly Admiralty Point itself. Admiralty Point offers a great view of the North Shore (Mount Seymour and Deep Cove), the Indian Arm, Burrard Inlet, and Burnaby Mountain.

Read the guide for this hike here.

Until next month!
