Trip Report – Elk Falls – 30 Sept 2015

On a lovely fall day, ten of us hiked the loop from the logging bridge over the Campbell River up to the series of falls below the John Hart dam and back. We started along the south bank of the river passed fishermen and later the construction on the new generating facilities, then along the Millennium Trail to the spectacular new viewing platform and suspension bridge over the canyon below Elk Falls. We continued on the Riverside Trail to see Deer and Moose Falls, where we ate lunch on the rocks on the sun. We returned by the well-named Old Growth Trail to the Millennium Trail and then the Canyon View Trail to the north side of the Campbell River. There were quite a few pink salmon making their upstream migration. It’s a very scenic river through a beautiful forest. 12.1 km; about 5 hours.
