Goldstream Falls in Victoria, BC
Goldstream Falls is located in the southwest corner of Goldstream Park just outside of Victoria, BC. It's a small waterfall that cascades into a shallow bowl and on quiet mornings, is frequented by blue herons, woodpeckers and many other types of birds.
The Goldstream Campground is located nearby and wading in the shallow bowl is popular with campers on hot summer days.
The start of the pathway is in the southwest corner of the campground. Stairs and handrails leading down to the base of the waterfall are in place but the path is still quite strenuous. Good shoes are required to avoid slipping and tumbling down the tall steps.
