There is a seriously magical swimming spot hidden in B.C. and the water looks out of this world.

Finding this natural wonder will make for the perfect summer plans for you and your friends.

The emerald green oasis is located in Golden Ears Provincial Park, B.C and even has a stunning waterfall you can swim beside. Plus, there's no extreme hiking required to get there.

The closest parking lot to this swimming spot is the Gold Creek Parking Lot. From there, it's a 2.6-kilometre walk to get there, while following the Lower Falls Trail.

AllTrails rated the trail as easy — so no need to worry about working up a sweat.

It's only about a one-hour drive outside of Vancouver so it'll make a super easy adventurous day trip.

This place will leave you so happy with how refreshing and gorgeous the entire spot is — it truly provides all the views!

You could even float or paddleboard the entire day away here and let all your worries wash away.


Can't wait to come back for a morning paddle 💚 #beautifulbc #nogatekeeping #explorecanada #vancouverhiddengems #vancouverhikes

The water is stunning — but a little chilly.

Dogs are welcome too and they really seem to enjoy the marvellous scenery, just as much as their humans.

Your furry BFF might even want to take a dip in the green waters with you.

After a long day of swimming, you could even set up a tent in the camping areas nearby and not worry about having to drive home.

Camping reservations are accepted at Golden Ears Provincial Park so to avoid losing out on a site, make sure to book ahead.

Time to get out the summer itinerary, and add this spot in!
