Perhaps the most magnificent park on Vancouver Island, Little Qualicum Falls incorporates the entire southern shore of Cameron Lake, adjacent to MacMillan Provincial Park and the awesome Cathedral Grove Rainforest. Cameron Lake is bordered by steep mountains: Mt. Wesley to the north and Mt. Arrowsmith to the south. « less

This is a lovely short hike, suitable for young children and quite safe. You will meet other hikers as well

Stopped by to visit this while we were on Vancouver Island. Great waterfalls that are not too difficult a walk.

On the way from Cathedral Grove to Coombs we saw the road sign so decided to make a side trip. It was a pleasant surprise. Due to the time constraint and travelling with my aging parents we could only go to the Lower Falls. The trail leading to the Lower Falls was very easy to walk even for my Dad... More

On our way from Victoria to Tofino we decided to stay one night a Qualicum Falls. What an excellent choice! The park is really nice in a hilly rainforest surrounding with the falls nearby. We took the trail to the falls and were surprised by the beaty and force of it!

Coming back from a day out we turned down on the spur of the moment to visit these falls. After a walk we were not disappointed. Little Qualicum Falls is worth a visit.

We are new to the area, and decided to go for a little walk in the park and it was beautiful! It reminded us why we moved here and can't wait for better weather to venture out there again!

Little Qualicum Falls is a great place to go for a day trip or overnight camping. It is about a 20 minute drive from Parksville. There is plenty of parking and trails to walk. There is a few steeper areas on the trails here at Little Qualicum - you will be able to see well in advance on the trails... More
