One of the best parts of living in British Columbia, Canada, is we are surrounded by so much incredible nature. I love all the trees and mountains and of course…waterfalls! This summer, my husband and I made an effort to discover many of the nearby waterfalls. In this post, I am sharing five waterfalls to visit near Revelstoke. These waterfalls range from being 15 minutes from Revelstoke to one hour away. Keep reading for my Revelstoke, British Columbia waterfall guide.

Moses Creek Falls
Moses Creek Falls is a set of two waterfalls hidden along Westside Road just outside of Revelstoke. The hike is moderate difficulty, with several steep parts that can get quite muddy. It takes less than five minutes to get to the first waterfall from the lower parking lot, then another few minutes to get to the second waterfall.
From Revelstoke: 15 minutes
- From Victoria Road, turn left onto Highway 1 West. Turn right on Westside Road. Six kilometres up the road, you will see a parking lot on the right-hand side of the road and a sign that says Moses Creek parking area. You can park here, but I advise driving just past this lot and turning right on the next road, which leads down to a parking area next to the Columbia River. We found it was easier to access both falls from the bottom than it was from the upper parking lot.
**The road to Begbie Falls will be closed Sept. 16, 2019 for the construction of a campsite.** Check out Sites and Trails BC for up-to-date information.
The hike down to Begbie Falls is fairly easy and takes about 10 minutes. The trail ends with a set of stairs that lead to a viewing platform in front of the falls.
From Revelstoke: 20 minutes
- From Victoria Road, turn left onto Highway 1 West. Turn left on Highway 23 South. Turn left on Mount Begbie Road. Drive to the end of the forest service road and park.
Sutherland Falls is the easiest hike in this list of waterfalls. I wouldn’t even call it a hike, really. It is less than a five-minute walk down a flat trail. The scenery is gorgeous though, and it’s a nice easy walk in the woods.
From Revelstoke: 20 minutes
- Sutherland Falls is located in Blanket Creek Provincial Park. From Victoria Road in Revelstoke, turn left onto Highway 1 West, then left on Highway 23 South. Entrance to the park is on the left 23 kilometres down the highway.
Kay Falls is very much a hidden waterfall, and it is such a treasure to find! Walking up to the waterfall takes less than five minutes and is an easy hike. It is well worth a quick stop on the side of the highway.
From Revelstoke: 30 minutes
- From Victoria Road, turn left on Highway 1 West. Watch for a pullout on the left side of the road past the Enchanted Forest. For the exact location, type Kay Falls Trailhead into Google Maps.
Sicamous Creek Falls
**As of late July 2019, the Sicamous Creek Trails are CLOSED until further notice because of a fatal fall.** I was here just a week before the accident. Check Shuswap Trails for up-to-date information on the status of the trails.
There are several trails in the area, but if you want to get to the waterfall, it’s a very short hike. It takes less than five minutes to get to the falls. There is a set of stairs to walk down, along with a fairly narrow trail.
From Revelstoke: 1 hour
- From Victoria Road, turn left onto Highway 1 West. Turn left on BC-97A. At the roundabout, take the second exit onto BC-97A South. Turn left onto 2 Mile Road. You will see a Sicamous Creek Trails sign up the road a bit on the right.

Wow these are gorgeous photos lovely! This is my idea of heaven, I can’t wait to visit Canada and America and visit all of the national parks 😀
There are so many amazing parks in Canada! So much to see! 🙂
I looove visiting waterfalls (and I love Revelstoke) so this is really useful!
I will see if we can fit some of these in next time we drive through this area. It’s awesome that none of them are long treks to the waterfall…so they would make great places to stretch your legs on the drive from Vancouver to Banff. We normally stop in Revelstoke anyway for bagels at la baguette…so we could totally take food to a waterfall for a picturesque lunch stop!
These would all totally be the perfect places for a stop on a road trip! Ooh I don’t think I’ve been to La Baguette before, I need to add that to my Revelstoke list!
What a beautiful post with all those waterfalls! I love visiting spots like this that have great hiking and stunning waterfalls. I will definitely save this for when I make it to Canada. Thanks for the great info!
Hikes with amazing waterfalls at the end are just the best!
Every single one of these waterfall are SO beautiful! I would love to go chasing waterfalls in that area, it looks amazing. Thank you for this perfect guide!
Thanks for reading! It’s amazing how many waterfalls there are fairly close together!
I LOVE British Columbia! I went to Victoria & Vancouver back in 2015 and keep telling myself I need to go back. I love all the photos of the beautiful waterfalls! Now I have things for my list when I finally do make it back there 🙂
Oh you need to come back and explore Interior BC! There is so much to see in the Shuswap and Thompson-Okanagan areas!
I LOVE waterfalls! I’m gonna save this blog post so I can check these out when I move to Kelowna 🙂 Have you seen any of them in the winter months before?
So exciting you’re moving to Kelowna! Such a nice place, and there are so many places nearby to explore. I actually haven’t been to any of the waterfalls in the winter. It would probably be pretty cool though!
