Just upstream from Helmeken Falls in Wells Grey Park. The amount of water that flows over these falls are impressive. Worth the short walk into the edge of the Falls.

About a one mile roundtrip hike to a very nice and scenic Waterfall. When we were there in Mid June very heavy volume of waterflow. Good view points from the trail. This is a must see if you go to Wells Gray.
