It is no secret that Canada is one of the most beautiful places on Earth when it comes to nature. From striking valleys and breathtaking mountains to the sparkling glacier lakes, marvelous waterfalls and more. It simply has it all. Meet Christie Falls, one of those nature‘s creations you could simply stare for hours and it‘s hidden right here in the northwest mountains of Kelowna, BC, waiting to be discovered.
Christie falls is a spectacular gift situated on the edge of the area known as Fintry protected area. Fintry provincial park is at the east end of the shorts creek canyon where it opens onto the okanagan lake below westside rd. and features the very popular shorts creek waterfall.
The stunning waterfall doesn‘t come on a silver platter, rather the visitors have to earn the prize by completing a hike through the unique paths with every section being on a different difficulty.
As charming as the mountains are in winter, with their snow-white blankets, it is strongly recommended to only visit the waterfall in summer when all the snow has melted.
Even in the early spring months like April, there‘s a big chance that mountains still possess snow, possibly making the trail unreachable. Your earliest explorations should be somewhere Mid-May to June, with the best time being the rest of the summer, when both the road and the trail itself is clear and accessible.
