Explore Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park On Vancouver Island

I am so fortunate to have been raised on 🌲 Vancouver Island in British Columbia, 🍁 Canada and be surrounded by its natural beauty, along with the many spectacular outdoor activities and places to discover on the Island. One of our favorite places to head to for; camping, hiking and for spectacular scenery, is known as …

🏞 Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park. 🏞

If you’re in search of a beautiful nature walk, set among stunning scenery when traveling mid- island, then this park is absolutely perfect!

It’s situated within minutes from the City of Parksville and also on route to world famous 🏄 Tofino and Long Beach, located on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island.

The park is open all year long and each season, offering something uniquely different.

Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park is located just 19 km west of the City of Parksville off of Highway 4. This stretch of highway is also referred to as the; Alberni Highway. The city of Port Alberni is west of Qualicum Falls, about 30 kilometers away.

As well, the spectacular 🌳 Cathedral Grove located in 🌲 MacMillan Provincial Park is also enroute to Port Alberni and definitely … Not to be Missed!

Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park – Hiking

Little Qualicum River British Columbia

For those of you who want to enjoy a leisurely easy hike when visiting, there are 6 full kilometers of nature walk trails that run along the {Little Qualicum River} and other areas of the park.

These 🥾 hiking trails will take you through some huge old growth forest areas and newer ones as well.

For those looking for an easier hike if you don’t have the time, there’s also a lovely 3 kilometer loop trail that runs alongside the river. Complete with rest stop benches along the way, that will lead you to the upper and lower falls as well, for excellent viewing!

Little Qualicum Falls Pedestrian Bridge

A great hike for those with 🐶 pets, but don’t forget your dog leash! Pets must be leashed at all times when in the 🏞 Provincial Park.

Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park – Camping

Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Campground

An added bonus to the area and especially great for campers, is that 🏕 Qualicum Falls Provincial Park, is located right at the Falls.

There are a total of 96 campsites available and as one might expect, they fill up early. This especially so, during the peak season which runs from {June to September}. I highly recommend making advance reservations with 🏞 BC Parks.
