Introduction

Norrish Creek is a beautiful canyon that extends over several kilometers before disappearing at the edge of the Fraser Valley. The route through the gorge of Norrish Creek is essentially non-technical, although numerous small cascades and narrows sections require some downclimbing, jumping and frequently long swims through sublime pools of clear water.

The full descent is quite long (5km) and can become a bit boring with big groups that move slow. If you can do only half of the route if you wish so, the best part of the canyon is arguably the upper half.

Approach

The approach, descent and exit are described in the Beta Sites listed below. The attached map was derived from interpreting their beta

Descent

  • XPICX
    Canyon Topo
  • Exit

    The original beta recommends to exit before the gate-like walls, but it is better to continue, go through the walls (adding a minor length to the descent) and exit through a trail that goes from an old cablecar crossing the river all the way up to the road (see map).
