Upper Myra Falls

Myra Creek has two significant waterfalls – the better known Lower Myra Falls and somewhat lesser known Upper Myra Falls.

Visitors can easily reach the falls: there is a fine, approximately 4 km long trail. This hike leads through the pristine forests and hills of the central part of Vancouver Island. At the end of the walk, hikers are rewarded with a sight of a beautiful, powerful waterfall gushing down along the cliff into an emerald-colored plunge pool.

This waterfall is somewhat less impressive than the better known Lower Myra Falls – but it is somewhat less touristy as well.
