Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast
1. Della Falls
Where: Strathcona Provincial Park
Time needed: 2 – 3 days
Dogs Allowed?: Yes
Details: Della Falls is certainly off the beaten path. From the trailhead near Port Alberni, hikers will need a boat or water taxi to cross the Great Central Lake. Once across the lake there is a small campground, and there is another small campground at the base of the falls.
The effort is worth it, as hikers are rewarded with a front-row seat of the (arguably) tallest waterfall in Canada. Della Falls weighs in with a 440 meter vertical drop.
You can add an extra day to this hike if you wish to hike to nearby Love Lake.
