4.6/5 based on 170 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.

  • Spahat Falls is the first waterfall you upon entering the Wells Gray Provincial Park. It is also the least big but no less beautiful!!

  • Very short walk from the parking lot to the falls (70 m tall, but only about 7 m wide. Very impressive, can be viewed from different angles. The path to the Shedden viewpoint (per 1 km) is very worthwhile. Hardly committed through the forest.

  • The falls of Spahat, well that much less high than Helmcken, seemed more spectacular by the canyon that surrounds them and the better positioned lookouts. Stop before or after the Helmcken falls.

  • 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.
  • Cool waterfall! Very short walk.
  • Looks great and not far away from the route to jasper.
  • I am surprised not a lot of people come hear!
