Helmcken Falls, Clearwater

4.9
See an impressive natural landmark at Helmcken Falls, the fourth-highest falls in the country. Surrounded by the lush vegetation of a provincial park, the cascade drops over the western escarpment of the Murtle Plateau and crashes into a rough canyon. A viewing platform offers a good perspective on the falls, with the water, canyon, and surrounding trees forming a memorable (and very photogenic) scene. A range of trails through the countryside begin at the falls, of varying lengths and difficulties.
