Lineham Falls - Hiking Trail Information
Lineham Falls Trail Map
The three Lineham Lakes are situated within a walled basin, with a 300-foot headwall, and surrounded by three mountains. The fishing here is considered legendary, mostly because very few people have actually fished these lakes. The Lineham Falls trail is one way to access these lakes, but the official trail stops about 500 metres short of the falls. There are several hiking trails down, but these are considered a hazardous activity and you need a permit from Parks Canada to attempt it.
