Trail Name: Jamieson Creek Falls
Distance: 800 m
Time: Under 30 mins
Cell Service: No
Trail Conditions: This trail is fairly easy and flat but there are a lot of roots and rocks to watch out for in the path. The bridge itself is fairly rickety and lacks handrails. The bridge may not be suitable for young children or those unsure on their feet. (Beware that it might be in worst condition now than the photos show)
Highlights: Beautiful waterfall!
** Trail is inaccessible as Jamieson Creek FSR has been permanently closed as of June 12 2017 due to flood damage**
To get there: From the North Shore, take 8th street all the way out to where it turns into Westsyde rd. Continue on Westsyde rd for about 20 kms before turning left on Jamieson Creek FSR (There’s a brown sign on the right side of Westdye rd just before the turn off). Continue up this road until just before the 13 km marker. Or see it on Google here.
Park in the pullout on the right, just before the 13 km marker. The trailhead is a few meters ahead on your left. The trail is fairly short and simple. Beware of all the tree roots on the trail as they are a tripping hazard. In about 400 meters, you will arrive at a bridge crossing the creek. To view the falls you must cross this but be careful as it is a little unstable and can be scary.
This trail is short and sweet with a cool bridge and a nice waterfall. In the spring, we can imagine the waterfall would be quite full and spectacular. In summer, it might be a cool, refreshing spot to visit. We do not recommend bringing young children who may not be comfortable crossing the bridge by themselves (unless you are cool carrying them!) or older people who are unsure of their footing. Otherwise, this is a very cool spot and a must see in Kamloops!
