Those travelling along the Trans-Canada Highway pass by a concrete wall, not knowing what lies on the other side. Kay Falls is a beautiful hidden gem that not many people know about, situated in between Revelstoke and Sicamous.

If you’re driving along the highway, you must carve out some extra time to make a stop here on your journey.

It’s located just past the Enchanted Forest. Driving from Kamloops, you pass by the Crazy Creek Suspension Bridge going towards Revelstoke, and then look out for the concrete wall. Park by the wall to find the trailhead and discover the cascading falls just five minutes into the trail. You will be surprised how accessible this trail is, and you’ll never want to drive by again without making a stop here first.

The waterfall drops 187-feet above the highway, but there’s only a 45-metre stretch of highway where the falls are partially visible.

The falls are surrounded by lush forest and give off a strong mist that will refresh you and keeps the area super vibrant.
