Wells Gray Provincial Park
Wells Gray Park is known as the Waterfall Park, and a large wilderness park in British Columbia (the fourth highest falls in Canada). It offers both unlimited wilderness, and easily accessible waterfalls, wildflower trails, ski trails and lakes for canoeing.
Spahat Falls is a mere 10 minute drive on the way to Wells Gray where you will see the majestic Helmcken Falls (480 ft high). Dawson Falls is a cascade of water across the Murtle River as it rushes to join the Clearwater just after it drops over the Helmcken precipice.
Wells Gray is located north of highway 5 between Jasper and Kamloops, near Clearwater. Most visitors enter the park through Clearwater where there is an excellent information center for the park.
Two other roads to enter the park: from the town of Blue River west to Murtle Lake and from the town of 100 Mile House east to Mahood Lake.
Wells Gray boasts fabulous canoeing opportunities with five large wilderness lakes in a beautiful mountain setting. The canoeing here is among the best in Western Canada for day trips or multi-day expeditions.
Wild Flower Walks
The alpine trails in the south of the park offer spectacular views and in late summer, breathtakingly beautiful wildflower meadows.
Short Nature Walks
The park has many short trails exploring old-growth forests, pioineer homesteads, old volcanoes, canyons and more.
And Much More
Many other guided activities such as horseback riding and river rafting are also offered in and around Wells Gray.
