Wonderful little stop- only took us about 45 minutes (including standing in awe time) to do the entire loop. If you are not a hiker, you can simply take the 5 minute path to the falls. If you are a moderate hiker it is an easy hike to do the loop with a slight incline on the return. The falls... More

If you like straight waterfalls it was nice. But if you like cascades, which are more interesting, then this one is not for you. Also you cant see much of the falls or the river from the trail. There are other waterfalls in the area that are nicer.

We did the circuit over two bridges through beautiful native forested trails and enjoyed our walk immensely. It's cool under the canopy and suggest carrying an extra layer for warmth. The waterfalls are wonderful. Brave souls were swimming in the frigid waters on the cool day we visited...but they didn't stay in long! highest recommendations

A short walk to a broche and amazing views of the robber and falls. Linger trails as well and a swimming area. The water is cool and refreshing in three summer!

My first glimpse of the unusual waterfall plunging into a deep crevasse and continuing into a crystal pool at the bottom of a deep gorge. All of this is reached by a short walk through towering old trees. stunning. Don't forget to continue on to the lower falls and the cold, deep, swimming hole at the bottom.

The falls are close to coombs and there is a nice big parking lot for everyone. The falls are very beautiful and its a great place to bring your family on a nice day. There are also a few trails close by that seem to be pretty easy for a stroll around the park :)

We wanted to do a bit of hiking but with one older and one younger member of our group we needed something fairly easy. The Englishman River Falls Park has wonderful paved trails to the falls and the look back. It is well worth a couple of hours of your time!

I have walked this area may a time. Great place to geocache. and now the parking is free its a good base for a longer walk on one of trails. Depending on the time of the year the water falls can be spectacular. For those who don't walk far there is a loop trail round the river. I have not... More

Englishman River Falls Provincial Park is a little gem. The falls themselves are rather unusual in that they are turned sideways to the viewer and are worth seeing. Pleasant trails through the forest and along the river. The trail system is not particularly extensive but charming. A nice place to spend a few hours.
