A perfectly lush, green waterfall hiding in the inland temperate rainforest for you to discover! These dreamy falls are within very easy reach of Revelstoke, perfect for a quick nature retreat.
Moses Falls cascade down from Westside Rd. to the Columbia River, over a series of wide cliff bands. An upper access trail allows you to walk along the edge of the falls from one cliff band to the next, poking out at the bottom each step.
The trail is steep and can be muddy, but does not have slipping exposure to the steep sections of the falls. The lower access trail is a short, flat cruise to the base of the last cliff band and provides excellent views of the falls as well.
Watch out for your fave variety of damp loving ferns growing all around the falls! Mossy rock, spray from the falls and bountiful mature hemlock, fir and cedar trees round out the picturesque rainforest setting.
RAD adventure tip- wiggle your way around and down to the Columbia River, cruise along to wade across the outflow of the creek, then follow the creek back up the other side for some extra special viewing angles of the falls!
