Truly, I feel that Terrace BC has some of the most beautiful, and jawdropping sights on this Earth. The trouble is that, sometimes, you have to be willing to put in a bit of effort to find them. That being said, this effort is a small price to pay to see some of the things available in this area.
Hiking has always been a hobby and a passion of mine. I love exploring nature and, even more so, the feeling you get when you come across one of the many natural wonders hiding in Terrace's wilderness. It's an indescribably amazing feeling that I hope everyone can experience in their life.
The Gunsight Waterfalls are a staggering example of this feeling. If a picture says a thousand words, then I can only wonder how many words actually SEEING these waterfalls can account for. Located 18km outside of Terrace is the trailhead for Gunsight Mountain (a rewarding hike in itself, if you dare attempt the entire thing) and right across the highway from Furlong Bay. Heading about 2km into this trail, there is a deviation from the path up the mountain that takes you about 200m down the trail to behold the gorgeous waterfalls and rapids.
