In the summer of 2012 a family went on a guided hike to Karst Creek in Stathcona Provincial Park.  Karst is a distinctive topography in which the landscape is largely shaped by the dissolving action of water on carbonate bedrock (usually limestone, dolomite, or marble). This geological process, occurring over many thousands of years, results in unusual surface and subsurface features ranging from sinkholes, vertical shafts, disappearing streams, and springs, to complex underground drainage systems and caves.  Karst Creek offers an enjoyable 4km loop trail with lots to explore including Karst Creek waterfall!
