Nymph Falls Nature Park

Yesterday was my first time visiting this park. I always tended to avoid it due to the fish ladder potentially disrupting image composition. I was pleasantly surprised by the location.

This park protects 151 acres of second-growth forest located on the north side of the Puntledge River. The river is one of the main attractions of the park along with Nymph Falls. The river and falls rage over series of exposed bedrock ledges.

The spectacular Nymph Falls cascade over fish ladders blasted out 70 years ago to assist spawning salmon swim upstream. Watch fish returning in October and November. A rock outcrop at the shore provides a good location to view the river, the falls and fish ladder. American dippers, a small bird that loves the water, are often seen along the river. The falls are 600 meters from the parking lot.
