For terms and conditions please refer to www.ecospirit.ca 

This trip is for members only.

Trip details

Will gather at the parking lot and work out car pool logistics.  Extra vehicles will be parked at the side streets.  The trail head is just over 20 km north of Squamish on Squamish Valley Road.  If you are afraid of height, this trip is not for you as a portion of the trail is alongside a steep drop off adjacent to the creek and falls.   We will be climbing up several chain/rope sections as well.  We will hike up the trail and descend via the High Falls Forest Service Road (a safer option). 

 

Trail information

  • round trip distance: 12 km
  • elevation gain: 650 m.
  • high point: 725 m.
  • net hiking time: 4+ hours

      thanks Herbert. So no deep snow if I take the 1st diversion, is that correct?

    If the wait list is cleared and I am on the trip, I can offer rides from Kitsilano, Vancouver. I have done the hike many years ago. If I clear the wait list, you can text my cell phone for rides (up to 4),[masked]

    We need more cars before accepting more hikers. The trail head is 20 km north of Squamish. The very last km or two is gravel, but even a Honda Civic will have no issues.

    Aurore, would you share some of your hiking experience here. High falls creek involves climbing chain sections and certain portions can be steep and slippery. Thx

      Hi Herbert,
      I'm new in BC. So I've not been hiking a lot here yet. Did the diez vista hike 10 days ago.
      Climbing chain sections should be ok. I did hiking in Craddle Mountain, Tasmania and in the Alpes, France.
