  • The rearguard falls can be reached by a short detour directly off the highway on a fixed route. The cases themselves are great, but even more interesting, when you consider the way of the salmon don't come further

  • It's a little slippery (icy) in the winter but a nice little hike for friends and family! Would come back in the summer!  more »

  • Very scenic spot on the Fraser River. You can watch kayakers and white water rafters battle the currents. Not very high, but powerful waterfall with an array of observation platforms. Ten minute walk.
  • a nice litle (not high, but wide) waterfall, with fast flowing water.
  • Beautiful falls worthy of pulling over for, short walk off the trail.
  • The great hike down the hill to see the falls, it was amazing
  • Great view of the falls. We had to wait 15 minutes to before we saw any salmon jump.
