Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area, Bragg Creek

4.0
Follow the water's lead to the rushing waterfalls of Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area. A small set of waterfalls leads to the main 6 m (20 ft) drop. The height of the exposed walls fluctuates with the water's vastly changing water level. Surrounding the falls is a 1 km (0.62 mi) long hiking trail that starts and finishes at a nearby picnic area. The site suffered significant damage following a powerful flood in 2013 that affected the picnic area and paved walking trails, but the natural beauty shines through. You'll likely see kayakers, canoer, and fishermen here. Put Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area at the forefront of your travel plans using our Bragg Creek online road trip planner.
