Spahat Falls, Clearwater

4.7
#3 of 6 in Parks in Clearwater
Waterfall Nature / Park
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.

  • Always enjoy the stop here as it's just such a dramatic drop. A short walk from the parking lot brings you to the viewing platform and it's work the 5 mins for sure!  more »
  • There must have been a big storm because many trees were blown over causing damage and closing the small path from the parking lot taking you to the top of the falls. In the parking lot there's ample ...  more »
  • Okay so I have a phobia about heights..! We'd worked our way back down the road, beginning at the stunning Bailey's Shute and "doing" he equally stunning Helmcken and Dawson Falls and the Mushbowl. We...  more »

  • Just off the highway (and in winter, just a few minutes hike) for spectacular views of the canyon and falls. Be sure to walk to the main lookout for the best views. Very secure chain link fences will keep kids and dogs safe.
  • Just a short drive and shorter hike from Clearwater is this gem. We came in the winter on our way home and because out Airbnb host suggested it as great spot just inside Wells Grey Park. Well worth the side trek!
  • Great natural wonder a quick drive off the highway!
  • Easily accessible and a glorious view. Super interesting volcanic landform and processes. Different than the usual glacial landforms seen around most of British Columbia.
  • Beautiful location.short walk from the parking area, with a nice platform viewing area.
