Please respect the outdoors and leave no trace. One tip how to dispose of waste properly: Pack out toilet paper and hygiene products. For more information, visit https://lnt.org/learn/7-principles

In any state in the U.S. or any other province in Canada, with perhaps the exception of Alaska and the Yukon Territory, a waterfall of this magnitude would be a major tourist destination. You'd find a large parking area, summer concessionaires selling coffee and snacks, an observation deck, an elaborate trail system to see every nook and cranny of the cascade, and signage and promotional material hailing the waterfalls greatness. Not Slollicum Creek Falls. Not in British Columbia. In fact, none of this exists at Slollicum Creek Falls. No signage... nothing.

​From the flanks of Slollicum Peak, Slollicum Creek dramatically descends into Harrison Lake's eastern shore creating Slollicum Creek Falls, which totals in impressive 365 meters (1,200 feet). The relatively remote waterfall is located 14 kilometers north of Harrison Hot Springs along Harrison East Forest Service Road en route to Bear Creek and Cogburn Beach Recreation Site Campgrounds. From the road, two of the waterfall's main drops can easily be seen from the road: a 76 meter (250 feet) horsetail and an additional 15 meter (50 feet) drop on the side of the creek's canyon. The largest drop, at 122 meters (400 feet), is located 320 meters downstream from the road and unfortunately can't be seen, nor are there any trails leading to it. The falls can faintly be seen by boat on Harrison Lake, however.

While on the waterfall hunt, continue an additional 8.3 kilometers north on Harrison East Forest Service Road to smaller and still impressive Bear Creek Falls.
