This waterfall has been surveyed, mapped and measured in person by the World Waterfall Database.
This waterfall occurs along a stream that is known to vary greatly in volume and as a result may not flow consistently year round or may dry out completely during certain periods.
HISTORY AND NAMES
- Flood Falls is the Colloquial name of this waterfall
The falls are named for the nearby town of Floods (which is sort of a suburb of sorts to nearby Hope) and due to its proximity to Flood-Hope Road is sometimes referred to as Flood Hope Falls.
Flood Falls is probably of more interest to waterfall hunters than anyone else due to its small volume, but considering the relatively easy access it is a good spot to take bushwhackers-in-training who want to experience some relative seclusion.
Location and directions
Depart Highway 1 at Exit 164 (Flood-Hope Road) and turn left on a frontage road immediately after the highway overpass (from either direction, you'll want to cross to the south side of the highway). About 100 meters from the overpass, there's evidence of an old gravel road leading into the woods. Park here and look for a faint path leading into the woods. Soon the brush gives way to a forest growing on a large alluvial fan. The trail starts out as faint and hard to follow but as long as you keep walking towards the cliffs, keeping the stream channels (which are only occupied with water right at the base of the falls) on your right, you should find the falls without a problem. The trail becomes easier to follow the closer to the falls you get.
