    The Canim Falls Trail is a 2.3 km out-and-back hiking route in Wells Gray Provincial Park that will take you to viewpoints overlooking two breathtaking waterfalls. Along the trail, you will hike through the forest alongside the Canim River to first reach the scenic Mahood Falls before continuing onto the picturesque Canim Falls. Try timing this hike for the spring when water levels are higher and the falls are even more magnificent.
