Amazing beauty

Only a short walk along a clear open trail from the parking lot. Ending at a well made viewing platform

The most amazing waterfalls EVER!
Aug. 2021
WOW is all I can add! Did the trail starting at the information centre. I would drive all the way up here to Hemlcken falls and then on the way back hit Dawson falls, Moul falls and make sure you go under the waterfalls! Not worth it if you don’t!! Then a little 5 minute stop at Spahats falls. The to end the day I would totally recommend the Gateway Grill! It was awesome food!

Fantastic Waterfall
Jul. 2021
Bit of a drive north from Clearwater. The falls are awe inspiring and don't forget to take in The Mushbowl and Dawson Falls while you're here. Also stop at Spahats Falls on your way back and you won't be disappointed.

Stunning Falls
Jul. 2021
Truly stunning. Well worth the trip. Care should be taken with young children as there are some very steep drops that are not fenced.

Stunning
Jul. 2021
The falls are stunning. A must see in Wells Gray park. You can see one side of the falls by doing a hike (fairly flat) and/or you can keep driving and go to the look out. The look out requires no hiking. I recommend both but beware that the side with the hike has no railings, fences, etc. so be aware of how close you are to the edge.

Majestic

This falls is only a few minutes walk from the parking lot. This tall and narrow falls looks majestic from a distance. As you walked closer to the viewing deck, it became more beautiful with sound and full view of the drop

Lots of parking, outhouses and well marked out trails. Good railings too. I felt safe with family of six. Even more stunning in person!

Take the time to hike
Sep. 2020
The hike is easy and lovely... the drive up a bit long an there are many other spectacular falls a lot closer to Clearwater.
Still, this is a must see. The scenery in both direction is breathtaking. Take a moment to look AWAY from the falls.
Be careful of the ledge on the less traveled path.
