Very accessible falls from the car park, and an amazing sight. Easy to get some good photos and well worth the drive.

It is maybe a 10 minute walk in through a very pretty forested trail. Be careful as I think it drops off along the side of the path. There are also multiple viewpoints and some are easier than others to access

This was our first visit to the area. The falls are splendid with easy access. Lovely mature trees around and a good view and you could see it from above and below.

Moul falls was closed due to bush fire threat so these were the falls you could actually get right up to and see. From the lookout right at the top you can make your way to the bottom of them and get really up close

Only 5 kilometers from the Wlls Gray park entrance. You will find the parking area on the right side of the road. It is just a short walk to the relatively low, but wide Falls.

This waterfall is impressive because of it s width not height or treacherousness of the river. It is. Good thing to see and photograph but there re better waterfalls to see on the Clearwater River if you are tight for time

Among the three falls we visited in wells gray, Dawson comes in as the second best behind the Helmcken falls. Ample car parking, though the falls are a 15 minute walk from the car park. You can get really close to the mouth of the...More

This fall was my favourite and is very loud. It has a devils cauldron feel to it and it's great to watch. You can hike through the woods to the side of the falls and get down to a small rocky area where better photo...More
