With the waterfalls viewable from the hot pools and suspension bridge, this area is ideal to explore as a daytrip – a grand mix of mountains, gorges, and waterways. Families can also hike, bike, or relax on the sandbar and pebble beach where Crazy Creek joins the Eagle River. Watch for wildlife and see historical remnants of the pioneer days. This was once the village of Taft. A sawmill thrived from the late 1800’s and lumber was hauled from the valley by logging train. To power the sawmill water was piped from above Crazy Creek Waterfalls - through the gorge to the mill - via a fourteen inch wood stave pipeline. Large volumes of water (at up to 150 pounds pressure) turned the waterwheel which drove the large band saw.
Watch for the waterwheels on Hwy 1 midway between Sicamous and Revelstoke – that is where the trailhead begins. It is an easy 4-minute walk (suitable for all fitness levels) to the waterfalls along broad boardwalks.
