Ammonite Falls get a fair bit of attention from Nanaimo's hikers but the rest of the lower creek system is probably one of Nanaimo's better kept secrets. This is due in part to the steep and slippery trails that you have to take to get into them. You have to be pretty sure-footed in some parts of the trail! (and be prepared to slide down some muddy parts on your ass!) Recently I took Jurgen, a photo buddy, and the two dogs in to photograph some of the smaller (but imho more photogenic) waterfalls in the park as well as Ammonite Falls.
There are two ways into Ammonite Falls. One way you enter from a trail off Jameson Road and one where you go in on the "Jail Trail" off Weigle Road. The trail system from Weigle Road is the harder way to get there but is so much more rewarding in terms of views.
