Flatbed Falls Hiking Trail

Flatbed Falls with Swimmers in Autumn Afternoon - Tumbler Ridge, BC, Canada | SAM TSAI . COM

September 22, 2012: Flatbed Falls with some swimmers climbing down the cliff.


Flatbed Falls is not high, but is close to town and boasts a great swimming hole. The Flatbed Pools trail leads to three delightful pools on the creek, each with swimming possibilities: Top Pool, Overhanging Rock Pool and Cabin Pool. Cabin Pool is also the site of accessible dinosaur tracks.

Tumbler Ridge is one of the few places in the world where you can see authentic dinosaur footprints. To stand here and think about massive dinosaurs lumbering across this very same ground—but millions of years ago—is awe-inspiring. Sites can be visited on your own, but an interpretive tour with an experienced guide is the best way to get the most out of your visit. Dinosaur tour bookings are available at Dinosaur Discovery Gallery.
