Marked as the geographical center of British Columbia, Hixon is home to the aptly named Hixon Falls. The falls are tucked in behind the tiny town just a short 4km jaunt off Highway 97 . Don't be discouraged by the lack of signage leading you to the right place, just follow Hixon Creek Rd. (east) down a dirt, and at times, winding road until you reach a parking area. From there, follow a narrow path by foot until you hear the resounding echo of falling water. It is not unusual to enjoy the natural beauty of the cascading falls in solitude, for we did not encounter any other visitors along the way. Pack a lunch and sit by the waters edge, even just wander along the shoreline of the fallen water, or simply revel in slendour of the little falls that could.
