Easy parking. Short walk to falls for those less ambitious. For a simple amble for the more adventurous a longer walk is available. Down to a second smaller falls. So pretty when water is combined with the beautiful scenery of Vancouver Island. If your in the area don't miss it.

I went there with friends. It is a great place for hiking. Deep canyon, few ponds with crystal clear water and many different paths to choose from. Remember to have good boots and stay hydrated. I can recommend that place.

a few hours here towards the end of September was an afternoon of peace and quiet . Friend and I walked and photographed the falls, and the beautiful forest..a light rain only added to the atmosphere. Strongly recommend you not miss this

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
