I was in the Puntledge – Black Creek area so I decided to take a quick stop at Nymph Falls Nature Park. The trail from the parking lot to the falls is about 1.2km round trip, however, there are many longer trails in the park including mixed use, cycling and horseback only trails.
In the 1950’s, BC Hydro, along with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, blasted a series of water ladders through these falls to make it easier for returning salmon to swim upstream.
Nymph Falls are located on the Puntledge River, downstream of the Comox Lake Dam and upstream of Stotan Falls, the Puntledge Diversion Dam and the Puntledge Powerhouse.
Pretty, and well worth the short hike – however, caution should be exercised along and in the river.
