The Experience

The Waste Transfer Station

We've got to admit, telling you that the trail starts at the local dump isn't the most exciting thing... Don't worry, within minutes we'll be in the forest, making our way up the Whitegoat Trail.

 

The Whitegoat Falls Trail

As we make our way through the cool forest we reach a junction where a smaller trail take us to a small V shaped gorge on Whitegoat Creek, also known as Cline Creek from the highway signs.

The Creek

The easiest approach to the falls is by walking up the creek bed where the views tease us of what's to come.

 

The Falls

The pretty settings have made these falls a popular destination. Hidden in the rock, they reveal themselves at the last minute as we make our way up the creek.

We rarely cancel tours due to weather, as long as we can have a safe adventure. You’ll be amazed at how warm we get snowshoeing at -20C or how much fun hiking in the rain can be!
