Individual Trail

North Okanagan / Vernon

12 min driving from Downtown Vernon

About a 2 hour return-trip walk, BX Falls takes you along the BX creek and leads you on a steady elevation to a gushing waterfall.

The Cedar forest trail entails rock and dirt slopes, several bridge crossings and one water crossing, it is recommended to wear sturdy footwear. Scenery includes dense foliage and sun-soaked pools of water along the way.

Once you reach the falls, you have an option of taking a side trail down to the bottom of the falls for a closer look, this takes about an hour each way and can be located at the north-east end of the trail.

Due to high stream levels in 2010, several bridges were washed away and are in the process of being rebuilt, hikers must take caution as they attempt to cross the creek. It is also advised to be wary of wildlife after several sightings of bears and their cubs in the summer of 2012 near the park.

  • I'm coming from Kelowna as well. Do you know how long it takes to get there? Having trouble finding an exact address for the parking lot.

  • There is no exact parking lot. Do you two need a ride still? It is about an hours drive from Kelowna depending where in Kelowna you are coming from.
