Silverton Falls is prettier than Johnston Canyon, coming down in a cascade along Silverton Creek. It is not as well known, and much less crowded.

To get to the waterfall, start hiking along the Rockbound Lake Trail. Look for a small (unmarked) trail off to the right after about 200 metres. The trail leads to a bridge over Silverton Creek. Do not cross the creek, but instead follow the path leading up the slope to a close-up view of the waterfall half-way up.
