Another gorgeous waterfall to view. The parking lot there is quite small as we were lucky that people were just walking back to their vehicle when we pulled into the lot. From the parking lot, we had to walk about 10 minutes to see the...More

This large wide waterfall is like a mini Niagara. You can take a short hike to the brink of the falls, where the power of the falling water is right next you (you're behind the safety fence thankfully). Amazing.

It's worth the short walk to see it. Massive amount of water rushing across the entire width of the river. Pretty awesome to be so close to these magnificent waterfalls. Take bug spray as will be case all throughout Wells Gray.

We saw a great many waterfalls and rivers during our trip to Canada but this has to rank as one of the most beautiful

The width is so wide such that the waterfall looks like a mini Niagara. Easy access just a few minutes’ walk from parking.

Easy walk from the parking lot to the falls. Not overly huge but you get real close to it. My boys found a fallen tree that overhang the falls a bit and they had to get out on it for the photo op. Not recommended...More

Dawson Falls is a magnificent experience of the power of water. Located 40.6 km North of Clearwater, the drive up the paved road also offers wildlife viewing and stops of interest along the way. There is easy accessible parking, well marked trails and several choices...More

This is another stop that needs to be done whilst in Wells Gray PP. It's a beautiful fall but take your insect spray as a 'just in case'
