The walk up to the Twin Falls was not too tough and the hike was well worth it. Just an awe-inspiring view of the waterfall. Well worth the visit

Super cool water falls

Definitely worth a visit to these twin waterfalls. It is a quick hike and our 6 year old did it fine.

Well worth the drive and hike

Very scenic views from the platform at the end of an easy trail (up hill). Worth the short drive from Smithers and the short hike. Do it!

Nature is amazing!
Aug. 2020 • Family
What an amazing site to see. Its a short hike up a bit of a steep hill. Our 5 year old pretty much ran the whole way up, so it's not all that challenging, tripping hazards are the main concern. It was raining when we hiked it and that made the experience even better. There many falls but the twins were amazing! Such an amazing sight to see. There are camping spots but very limited numbers. We just did the hike. Not far from city center, about 9kms. Very worth seeing and highly recommend.

This hike to the glacier is quite something, shale certainly plays a big part in how difficult it can be, the trail is also susceptible to being blocked by fallen trees in the wooded areas, but that makes for more adventure! Note that the hike to the falls is quite easy and should be manageable for most people, but the hike to the glacier will need a bit more ability and determination, but the view of and from the glacier is quite good. Make sure to start your climb with enough time to get back before dark, it can be a bit miserable up there without daylight.

Rush and Roar

Even though living in our mountain town means that one is close proximity to stunning geography day to day... it makes it no less wondrous to viewing the local sights. Twin Falls is just such a sight. The melt water of the Hudson Bay Glacier follows two paths from the ice to a dramatic drop to the gulch below.
The newly surfaced road now provides a much more tourist friendly approach to the parking lot, though it is still quite narrow as it winds it's way through stands of huge spruce and pine. Their shade makes for a refreshingly cool atmosphere on even the hottest summer days. Once at the lot there are clearly marked routes to the falls, as well as a trail up to the foot of the glacier. That particular route dictates you need sturdy footwear, spare clothing, extra water along with strong lungs and legs as it is a fairly steep up hill grade a.l.l. t.h.e. w.a.y.. The trail to the falls is well packed gravel and takes you to a viewing platform and further to the base of the falls. Though going to the base of the water fall requires some rock scrambling skills so pleas your careful best judgement. The whole scene is majestic with the walls of the gulch rising steeply on either side and the rush and gush of the creek in your ears. Note in Winter there are regularly avalanches in the gulch, use common sense precautions. This is a signature place here in Smithers and not to be missed.

Nice Sidetrip
Jul. 2019 • Couples
About 6 km off Highway 16 the road starts as paved and becomes gravel with a steep climb. When you get to the end there is a small parking lot and a half a dozen camping sites (free). My rig is 52 feet long and we got in easily and lots of room to park. Camping sites are quite small so we probably could not have used one if we had wanted to stay. However you are here for the waterfalls just a little farther up the canyon. A short, steep hike up a well groomed trail will get you to a viewing platform. A little farther up on a not quite so well groomed trail will get you right next to the rushing water. Careful here it can be very slippery. The pictures you will get will be incredible. We did not hike the glacier trail. Complete dive and hike time will be a little more than an hour.

Super easy hop skip and jump to a nice view of the falls. There’s also 4 free recreation camp spots in the parking lot!

Amazing views and waterfalls
Jun. 2019 • Friends
Wow this place is amazing, so much to see and do. There are two stunning waterfalls you can visit, a little 15 walk then there is a much longer glacier hike, leave a few hours for this one. There’s a camping area there as well if you are a little more adventurous. You need to have a decent level of fitness. Some amazing photos to be taken.
