Prince George, Science, Nature or Animals
Heading down south the other day on Highway 97, I was continuing my waterfall search for this summer and decided to make my way down to Hixon Falls. Located a short distance off Highway 97 heading south from Prince George, and just before arriving in Hixon, is located the turn off for Hixon Creek Road. After driving down the road you will come to three different forks in the road, and you will take the left turn option every single time. Eventually after about a 5-10 minute drive you will arrive at the parking lot where you can leave your car and make the short hike into the waterfall. The falls are incredible for being such a hidden gem off the highway, as most people driving past Hixon would not stop at them, or even know that they were there. The falls are not the biggest in the area or the most magnificent, but definitely worth the stop to see. The day was made even better as it was a nice warm day and I went for a cool dip in the falls. Whichever direction you are coming from, take a break at Hixon Falls and enjoy the cool mist of the falls in the daily sun.
