Tulip Creek Falls

Short, sweet, spectacular – that’s the trail up to Tulip Creek Falls. It’s less of a hike and more of a diversion, but it’s well worth the trip!

Trailhead: Deer Park Road
Distance, round trip: 0.5km
Elevation: +16m
Season: late March to early November
Difficulty:  Easy


After passing Syringa Provincial Park, turn onto Deer Park Road and drive to 3.5km. More detailed info can be found at the Castlegar Parks and Trails Society.

The trailhead isn’t marked, but the road widens to allow for parking and a trail climbs up along the banks of the creek.

The Waterfall

The trail to Tulip Creek Falls requires some thoughtful stepping, but it’s short and scenic. The waterfall is quickly reached, nestled between red rock and bright green moss.

[…] 3.5 km into Deer Park FSR, you know you’re at the trailhead for Tulip Falls when you reach the first bridge. The road is wider near the bridge allowing for a few cars to park […]

If you follow a trail above the falls, it will take you through the canyon a bit farther … there are a number of climbing routes that have been set, as well as ropes to hold onto. Precarious and dangerous, but the towering walls on either side make it an excellent side adventure
