“40 Kms and counting”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Worth the drive to see the beauty of God's creation. Place is well maintained with a park to bring your own food if you plan to have a little picnic. As the title goes, you will need a few hours to go in and return to Clearwater.

“So far my favorite”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We stayed in Clearwater for few days and decided to explore. Didn't know much about the area and to my surprise discovered all these amazing waterfalls. This one by far is my favorite.
The long drive was very picturesque and the road surprisingly good. A must see !

“Worst mosquitoes I ever experienced”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

After driving past the Wells Gray Park sign many times en route to Vancouver, we decided to take a side trip to the famous Helmcken Falls. The falls were indeed as impressive as reported, but we picked the wrong time of day at the wrong time of year. We were the only people there near dusk on a cloudy day, and so every mosquito flocked to us. They were so thick I couldn't take a photo that didn't have little gray spots in it from out-of-focus insects.

Don't go at dusk in the spring.

“Stunning falls”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Quite a long drive out but worth it. Very large falls with a good viewing platform. Also other falls to look at on this scenic journey.

“Great falls”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

These falls are apparently the 4th highest in Canada and well worth a look, the views around are spectacular and the falls are mesmorising, the valley below is a reminder of how long this water has corroded the landscape, truly awsome and mighty. must see.
