The sites & sounds in this park is well worth the experience. These hiking trails can be challenged by young or old, as they are nicely designed out. They follow the creek bed with some nice little water falls to see. Nice large parking lot & flush toilets are available during the high season.

Just as my title says, Peaceful, Beautiful Englishman River falls. We were last there 30 yrs ago. Remembered that it was lovely back then. However when we saw it again this time, it was even more spectacular than we remembered.

We wanted to hike to see the falls. The signage needs to improve. We found what we thought were the Lower Falls, which were lovely. Then we followed the trail which we thought led to the Upper Falls. It dead ended at the property line. Coming back we discovered that the Upper Falls went out another trail. They, too, were... More

Gloria and I hiked in the park for a few hours, snapping pictures of the scenery such as the falls, moss-laden trees and even a mouse that was feeding at our feet. It was a nice experience.

How can you not give this wonderful place a 5! My wife and I took our son and daughter in law to the park, they have just moved here from the prairies, and this is one of our favourite places to hike. We began our hike and did a number of the different trails, there are quite a few, of... More

If you want to get out and enjoy a hike, head to this spot. Beautiful evergreen forest with lots of hiking trails wind around the falls. Picnic tables are available for day use. Great place to check out

This is truly a spectacular swimming spot. Water is cool and refreshing, lots of spots to splay out a towel and hang around. Plenty of hiking and biking too if that's your thing. I found this place a bit difficult to get to though - there are numerous access points and some are more convenient than others. I entered by... More

It was an easy relaxing hike with the right attire . The fall is so powerful and beautiful you knew you were getting close because of the sound. When you finally get to the falls when you look to the left, it is the falls just disappearing into a fairly small opening and the right is the river that seems... More
