Ammonite Falls

Ammonite falls is one of those place that you can go to and each time you revisit it you are reminded how beautiful the area is. While in Nanaimo for the weekend I made another trip out to the falls and there was a lot of water coming over the falls do the the amount of rain and snow we have had in the past few weeks.

Although the falls are the main attraction the whole area is a fantastic place, when it gets a bit warmer I want to explore above and below the falls a bit more.

Ammonite Falls

Last weekend while I was in Nanaimo for the long weekend I hiked out to Ammonite Falls in Benson Creek Regional Park to take a look at the falls.  The last time I had been it was in the middle of summer and the falls was reduced to a trickle. This time was a bit of a different experience, with all the rain and snow in the mountains the creek and the falls was very big.

Although falls its self is protected by the Benson Creek Park much of the land around the park is being logged or developed. Walking the most popular route to the falls you will slowly have to pass by more and more signs of development and logging.
