A GVRD standard trail leads from the parking lot a short distance to a bridge and picnic area. It is perhaps five to ten minutes to a view of Cliff Falls. On my last trip there, January 03, the falls were roaring, as heavy rain and snow melt had put Kanaka Creek into a torrent. There are a number of short trails in the area and you can also follow a trail to the fish hatchery.
Take Dewdney Trunk Rd. in Maple Ridge and turn south on 252nd St. Travel to the end of the road to the parking lot near a grassy sports field. The trail starts to the left of the ball diamond. Address is 25100 116 Avenue, Maple Ridge

CommentYup, another one. Abbotsford is a long way from Ridge, especially if you're hiking!

CommentYes I know that Kanaka falls is in Maple Ridge but there doesn't appear to be a listing under closest city for Maple Ridge so I used Abbotsford instead.

CommentThis is not an Abbotsford trail, it is a Maple Ridge trail. This is misleading.
