To reach the trail head take the road to Cypress Provincial Park. Drive just passed the municipal works yard towards the first hairpin turn. Pull in here by the big yellow gate. It’s best to park off to the side if you can.
From here head up the road to your right for a rather boring walk to the power lines at the top of the hill. There is a small sign just to your left (west) that takes you down to a narrow trail. There is a fence and gate about 20m in, then the trail widens up after that and heads down into the forest. In about 10- 15 minutes you will come to a fork. To the right will take you down a slope to Cypress Creek and a small canyon. The left trail takes you down to a wooden bridge at which point you should be able to hear the falls. There is a fenced off view point at the top for you to look down ,but may advise is to head down the trail a bit farther then swing down thru the bush . There you will find a side trail that will take you to a better view. If you have the kids with you one word of caution. Dont let them take the trail on the east side of the bridge. This trail is very narrow and comes out on the far side of the falls. The rocks here are moss covered and one slip here could be deadly.
There are also a number of small trails that lend themselves well for the kids to do plenty of exploring, or if it is one of those rainy days great for some moody photos of the forest.You will also see a few of the last 400 year old trees the escaped the logging in the early days of Vancouver.
