There is an established trail leaving from the west end of Nahatlatch Park, taking the hiker along the creek up to Mehatl Cascades. This trailhead is identified by a large open space on the right side of the forestry road, directly before the Nahatlatch River is crossed. This trail is approximately 3 km in length. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.

Beyond this trail there are no marked hiking trails. Hiking in this park requires excellent route finding skills Hikers should be in excellent physical condition. Until the alpine is reached a fair amount of bushwhacking is required. Hikers can follow the Mehatl Creek up to its headwaters in the northern portion of the park.

Traversing alpine ridges, hikers may access northern alpine portions of the park approaching from the west via Lillooet Lake and Lizzie Creek. Access is also north from the Stein Valley Nlaka’pamux Heritage Park or from the east via Kwoiek or Log Creeks. Logging roads along Lizzie, Kwoiek or Log Creeks may assist in accessing the park.

There are kayaking opportunities for the very experienced on the creek below the falls. This is extreme whitewater and kayakers should be familiar with the creek’s grade designation.

There is trout fishing in the creek below the falls. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
