“Picture of beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Lovely walk through the huge trees. Used to picnic there many years ago. The connector trail makes the falls lookout very accessible. Make sure you go when they let the dam open. It's spectacular.

Well maintained trails through old growth forest leading to an overview of Elk Falls. All just a few minutes drive from town.

“Just a great Provincial park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Haven't stayed at the campground so I can't offer an opinion but as far as the rest of the park, it has fantastic scenery, walking trails and the falls are worth the short downhill walk (remember you have to walk back up so don't do it unless you are in reasonable shape.) The path along the river is really quite spectacular. The cost? FREE! Doesn't get much better than that. We encountered fresh cougar scat by the falls so keep an eye on your small pets and bears are quite frequently observed in this area so make some noise and have a great, safe outdoor experience.

“Nice Riverside Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We did this walk during the salmon run and it was an amazing sight to see so many salmon. The walk takes you up the river past a hydro power plant and up to the Elks River Falls. Along the way we encountered a black bear just off the path, it was wonderful to see a bear so close and in its own environment.
