Nourse Creek Trail

Season: Summer | Activity: Day Trips, Hiking, Tracks and Trails
Norse Creek Falls is one of the most spectacular trails in the area. This 6.5 km trail treats hikers to the impressive Nourse Creek Falls. The first falls are 1.5 km from the start of the hike and the second falls can be found 3.4 km along the hike. From the parking lot, the trail winds upstream along the banks above Nourse/ Allin Creek. As the trail climbs into the hills, there are great views southward over Francois Lake. Along the creek there are scenic hoodoos, waterfalls to admire, and, if the weather’s right, some good swimming holes. The trail grade is fairly gentle with just a few short steep sections.

Directions: To get there from Burns Lake, drive south on Hwy 35. Pass the Francois Lake Ferry terminal and continue along the north shore of Francois Lake for about 15km to the Henkel Forest Service Road. Turn right and drive about 1.5 km to the trail parking lot.
