It was a awesome day with my kids

It was a short little walk into the falls to see all the beauty my granddaughter was overly excited to see how frozen they were

A very scenic drive into these falls with several hundred foot drop. Lots of spots to look at on the way and easily accessed by anyone

After travelling through the Rockies for a few weeks we saw a fair few waterfalls but this one was by far the most impressive, it was well worth the drive out.

These falls are beautiful. The trails are well marked. The wilderness is soothing & refreshing. The viewpoints are well placed & easy to access. I had no idea Wells Gray Parks was so stunning!

We did the (supposed to be) 3h round trip hike to helmcken falls and back. Was a really nice stroll through the forrest. Not really hard hike and doable in a shorter time :) the falls are super impressive! Bring your camera!!

You can drive into a parking area with a viewing platform or take a trail on the opposite side of the river to a more rustic vantage point (note there are no guard rails and the drop is 100's of feet down so not good for small kids and absolutely keep your dog on a leash

Even in a dry Summer, this is an amazing place, truly spectacular. Take a short walk to view the falls to it's best effect from a further point.
