Hike Description

If you are looking for a nice leisurely hike while staying in Liard River Hotsprings Provincial Park, or you are passing through the area and need a place to stretch your legs, Teeter Creek Waterfall is a great option. As you head north from the Liard River Hot Springs, the parking area is on the right side of the Alaska Highway. Keep an eye out for an information sign dedicated to the Teeter Creek Waterfalls Trail, which makes the obscure parking access easier to find. 

The short hike into the waterfall is suitable for all levels of fitness, and it features little to no elevation gain. The well-maintained route passes a small camping area before continuing up beside the creek and under forest cover for a little over half a kilometer. At this point, a series of waterfalls dump into the creek bed, where there will be a deeper pool with a bridge and water sampling station. More experienced hikers can scale across the bridge and venture further up the creek bed, but be aware that there are steep cliffs, no railings, and the trail is unmaintained. 

Most will find the hike into the bridge satisfying enough; the waterfalls are quite beautiful as they cascade through the lush boreal forest setting. In early July, the base of the waterfall is usually teeming with Arctic grayling that make their way up from the Liard River. 

Special Notes: The parking area is an active travel route for wood bison that often graze along the Alaska Highway. Wood bison are North America's largest land mammal, and although they are mostly gentle creatures, they can be unpredictable and dangerous if approached. Give them space.
