  • Only after three hundred meters down you are against this small but powerful waterfall and again a vantage point that you can see in 10 minutes we took more than half an hour... It turns out that we were as stupid watching this great race against the current offered to salmon, were enormous and only seen them fly to the other side of the waterfall. We missed batons as if we heard "going, going, your can..." hehehe. We almost obscured in the place but it was well worth it.

  • This is more of an extension of Mount Robson Provincial Park than a park in its own right. There is an easy walk to the waterfalls, which are very picturesque, and definitely worth the effort.  more »

  • Nice little trek. Not too far. Good picture opportunity. 1/2 hr return walk at a leisurely pace.
  • Awesome waterfall! Only about a 10 min walk from the parking lot which is located right off the highway. There are also some great board walks that were built for view points which made it really enjoyable!
  • Great pit stop. Outhouses by the parking lot. Easy walk to break up a drive. Beautiful falls
  • Love love love it here! Its a quick walk down but steep on the way back up. Only 2 minute walk but phew! Its steep so some elderly people may not want to go down if they have any serious health problems.
  • Short but steep descent from car park. Worth the effort.
