A short and fairly easy walk through a beautiful forest takes you to these impressive falls. Definitely a must do when in Campbell River, or even if just passing through.

A good suggestion to visit by staff at hotel, well worth a few hours of the day. Nice views as well as some quiet areas to get away from crowds. Take a picnic and sit at waters edge upstream and just enjoy some quiet time.

A fabulous forest close to town with easy walking. Very wet the day we were there, but very atmospheric with lichen covered trees and rising mists. Easily reached from town.
