3.1 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Ammonite Falls Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Alexander Stickel

With a 30 minute hike off of the Nanaimo Parkway in Nanaimo, B.C., this quick hike is perfect for after work or school!

The falls cascades off of a sheet of rock that is filled with Ammonite fossils, thus the name Ammonite Falls!

The trailhead is very distinct and has a parking lot close to the start of the trail. From the Nanaimo Parkway (#19) head onto Jingle Pot Road. Follow that for a few kilometres and turn onto Kilpatrick Road, followed by another right on Jameson Road. Drive to the end of Jameson Road and park in the parking lot to the right. The well marked trail head is just up the hill.

The hike takes about 30 minutes at a regular pace. It offers great walking trails that are also great for trail running and mountain biking.

Once you reach the falls, there is an intermediate rope section that is helpful to you get down to the base of the waterfall. The ropes really come in handy if you plan to visit in spring or winter as the trail can get muddy and slippery.

The whole area is great to explore in the summer! Offering summer swimming and a rope trail that gets you up and behind the falls. Make sure to look out for fossils!

If you are feeling an adventure after a long day at work or school, this one is perfect!
