  • Beautiful waterfall where you feel the force of the water. Nice buttons for walking. During our visit, it rained and that gave an extra dimension to our walk. It seemed with the beautiful trees and their vegetation on a tropical rain forest.

  • Was a great walk. The path was easy for anyone to walk on and ample parking so not to worry if you have a larger vehicle. I would definitely go for a walk again.  more »

  • Beautiful park with great waterfalls! I highly recommend a visit to this place. The walk is scenic and not too short, not too long. Parking lot has lots of room and the trip from Nanaimo and Parksville is quick and easy.
  • cool Situated along the pristine Englishman River north of Nanaimo, Englishman River Falls Provincial Park features two stunning waterfalls cascading along the descending riverbed into a deep canyon. This picturesque destination, set amid a lush old-growth and second-growth forest of Douglas fir, cedar, hemlock and maple, is an ideal location from which to explore and appreciate the incredible diversity of south central Vancouver Island, including nearby Cathedral Grove, the Pacific Rim, and the sandy shores of Parksville and Qualicum. The park has a large day-use area and campground and contains several hiking trails that meander through the forest and along the river. Visitors can expect spectacular views along the way, particularly from two bridges that cross the river where it plunges down the narrow rock canyon toward quieter waters below. The lower falls end in a deep crystal-clear pool – an ideal swimming hole in the summer when river levels are low and a great place to view spawning salmon in the fall.
  • This was such a beautiful walk! Not to long but still very emersive. Stunning views!
  • I loved the trail down to the river. A nice easy walk, with a beautiful little swimming hole at the end. If you mountain bike, there are trails right next to the campsite.
  • Easy walk. Around 15 minutes. Nice views of the lower and upper falls. Worth a stop! Tip: bring your swimsuit and BBQ ;)
