Explore Hellroaring Falls

0.6 miles 328.1 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Kaila Walton

Explore a surreal moss-covered forest surrounded by an old growth Hemlock leading to Hellroaring Falls. 

Once you are at the trailhead, the hike to the falls is relatively short. The first section of the trail is a bit overgrown with devils club. I would recommend wearing pants and not shorts. There is a steep hill at the beginning, with a rope for assistance and then the trail quickly levels out. The last bit of the walk is absolutely beautiful. The whole forest is covered with moss as if it were straight out of a fairy tale. After walking through the mossy forest there is a bit of a scramble down to the VERY slippery rocks to view the wonderful Hellroaring Falls. 

Please be careful walking on the slippery rocks, it hurts when you fall on them.

How to get there: From Crescent Spur BC drive 18.5km up the Morkill FSr (Forestry Service Road). Once you cross the Hellroaring Creek bridge at 18.5km you can pull over and park. The trailhead isn't very well marked and the trail isn't maintained but with a careful look you will be able to see it. Follow the creek upstream until the trail ends.

Fairy tale like place

This place is like a fairy tale once you get to the top of the short and steep hill. Walking into the whole forest floor covered in moss is something I don't think I have seen and it is amazing! worth while and pretty easy to find with the directions.
