Spahat Falls, Clearwater

(4.6/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
Through a narrow hanging gorge shoots a powerful rush of water that cascades freefalling some 75 m (246 ft) over the rocky cliff edge at Spahat Falls. The plunging waterfall owes its formation largely to deposits of volcanic rock and shifting icefields that chiselled gorges into the rock face. A brief, five-minute walk takes visitors from the parking lot to the main viewing platform; a longer, alternative hiking trail offers a slightly more scenic route. Using our custom trip planner, Clearwater attractions like Spahat Falls can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • On the way to explore the nature of Canada should not miss this waterfall. The Park is very spacious and very clean and well kept. You should look at these as possible with some time!

  • Worth a stop off to explore these waterfalls, quite spectacular. Don't get lost on the tracks, make sure you know where you've parked.  more »
  • These falls were beautiful and truly a natural wonder. It is very easy to get to the viewing point and you can walk along the ridge a bit if you are willing to step over some fallen trees. Great photo...  more »

  • Easily accessible and a glorious view. Super interesting volcanic landform and processes. Different than the usual glacial landforms seen around most of British Columbia.
  • Spahats is equally as impressive as Helmcken Falls, and allows you to get closer. The canyon is majestic and the falls plunge exceptionally scenic. Don't miss the cavern intermittent spring-fed waterfall on the canyon wall.
  • A smaller waterfall with a fine view. Easy access from the parking lot
  • Absolutely dramatic scenery and water falls close to town
  • Cool waterfall! Very short walk.
