Why choose a trail at Stave Falls?

The Stave Falls are a series of five waterfalls located in the Stave River Provincial Park, near the town of Mission in British Columbia, Canada. The falls are accessible from a parking lot and walking trail that runs along the river. The lowermost falls are wide and easily accessible, while the uppermost falls are more difficult to reach.

The falls were created by the Stave River, which flows over a series of basalt cliffs. The river is fed by glaciers and snowmelt from the Coast Mountains, and the water is very cold and clear. The park is a popular destination for hikers, photographers, and nature lovers.
