Nymph Falls Nature Park
Nymph Falls was leased by the CVRD in 1992 on a 20 year term. In 2012 this lease was renewed and extended for an additional 30 years.
In the winter Nymph Falls Nature Park is a raging high current river. In the summer the waters calm down considerable and this beautiful spot becomes a busy swimming hole for many. Swimming here is not without its risks however. Unpredictable currents and changing water depths increase chances of drowning. It is not recommended for inexperienced swimmers to enter the water at Nymph Falls.
The leisurely walk from the parking lot is roughly 600 meters. Dogs are welcome, even off leash if kept under control. There is also a picnic area complete with a few picnic benches.
There is a large network of trails including those marked specifically for mountain bikes and pedestrians. Horses are also permitted on trails. A trail map is provided by the Comox Valley Regional District.
