Where are we going today?
Cameron Falls Trail and Day Use Area are located within Hidden Lake Territorial Park, on the Ingraham Trail.
Offering many miles of varying terrain trails and explorable options, there are also seaosnal delights to be had, ranging from the falls freezing over in winter, to drying up so much in some summers as to allow safe walks across the overhang.
Or if you're up for some wet and you have some sun, hire a boat and explore the Lower Cameron River Canoe Route!
Please note that there are many start and access points for the trail, the address given is administrative only. Please plan your own journey thoroughly and independently.
How much does it cost?
When can we go?
Year round access with some restrictions.

Beautiful walk and falls.
by Ian Dromey
This is a pretty river with a couple of beautiful waterfalls and a nice gorge. You can hike a short loop around the upper and lower falls (~2km) or a longer hike further upstream (
My only complaint was the entire gorge has a chain link fence around it (for safety) and it was fairly busy even in April before the campsites were open.

Our dogs favourite trail, head over the middle bridge and take the left trail to find a good loop trail, takes about 45 minutes as it goes through the forest and along side the river.
