“Up close and personal to a big mountain”

Twin Falls/Glacier Gulch Trails
Ranked #1 of 24 things to do in Smithers
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 5, 2014

During a summer visit to Smithers friends took us to this small park about a third of the way up
Hudson Bay Mt. (12,000 ft.). The park is only about 20 min. from downtown Smithers but the last part of the road is gravel and AWD is helpful but not necessary. There is a small camping and picnic area at the end of the road but the main attraction here is to walk up the trail beside the small river to the viewing area for the twin glacier fed falls coming off the mountain. Good shoes and a walking stick would assist an older walker but the young or fit would be fine with runners or good sandals. the trail is well marked and only about 500m long but takes you to a special and unique location with a view not just of the falls but also of quite a rugged mountain.

Rewarding hike. Burn a good hour and take in the scenery. Cool waterfall and very very easy hike. Wonderful views and a great way to get in touch with nature

the hike is short and sweet. only took about 20 mins in each direction, so if you dont have lots of time, its a nice hike with a great close up view of the falls. to get access directly to falls, you need to scale a rock wall, which is a little dangerous when its wet out, so make sure you have a companion or two to help and wear good shoes with good grip

We check out waterfalls everywhere we go, and this one was well worth the trip! the drive is on a short dirt road, but it was very smooth and taken care of. it is a fairly easy walk, we did it in sandals, and a couple behind us were pushing a stroller. it is a bit of an uphill climb but all downhill back. There is a nice picnic spot to view both falls, and a beautiful view if you walk all the way up to the end of the trail. not a single complaint from us!
