Multitude of trails for both hiking and riding. Take the Suspension Bridge route for sure to the falls and walk the bridge and lower falls view. Less than an hour. If you have an extra hour go for the Pump Station as well!

Great park with good walking trails, a spectacular suspension bridge to get to falls viewing place, good views of river from other points around the park.

The elk falls provincial park is just beautiful and totally worth a trip. You can hike different trails and everything is well signed. If you stay in campbell river it is just a 10 minutes drive to the park. The new suspension bridge is awesome!

Had some time to kill so decided to check it out. Really lovely trails and great viewing of the falls. A nice interpretive center as well. This was nicely done.

The weather was absolutely perfect for today’s hike through the woods. The suspension bridge affords lovely views of the falls. The paths are well-groomed and there are bench’s and even pit toilets along the trails.

Yes, on leash. A lot of dogs are scared of the suspension bridge, so be aware that you may not be able to get Fido over to the other side.
