The falls are spectacular, the bridges and walking paths are very well done and can accommodate activity levels of all kinds. The falls themselves just take your breath away. It is quite a drive from Nanaimo to get there, make sure your GPS works, but its worth it.

I took my girlfriend there last week and really enjoyed the falls. The sights and sounds are very calming and peaceful. We stayed for over an hour and really enjoyed it. Even the mosquitoes weren't that bad.

We hiked here on a weekday and there was barely anyone there. The hike is very short, but the falls is quite impressive. We hiked both this trail and Little Qualicum Falls within a few hours of each other. I'd do them both back to back.

I love water falls and this one is a must see. It's even more fun to camp there. Open sites with lots of sun are available. One of my favorites on Vancouver Island

The park has a number of trails that bring you along the river and offer great views of the falls. Very easy to access and suitable for visitors of any age. Not to be missed.

Visited in 2014 with sister and niece. Loved walking through the paths, seeing all the natural fauna, hearing the voices of the forests. Pure beauty, pure serenity.

Spectacular and memorizing , friendly walkers, nice picnic area, nice drive there... Fencing a tourist must I suppose but it detracts from the beauty

Although not on the scale of Niagara Falls, these were still good to see. There are upper and lower falls and the car park is a short walk from the upper falls. It is then about an hours trek to do the round trip down to the lower falls. on one side the descent is less steep with hairpin bends... More

Lovely place to take a walk with the dogs and taking in some fresh air. Close to Coombs to pick up a few things to fill the picnic basket.

Very nice scenery with the hiking trails and falls. Make sure you know which trail your on or you could be in for a long up and down hike.
