There are better falls nearby. The Mosquitos were horrendous. Don't miss Spahat and Helmken falls. The parking lot was large and could accommodate large vehicles.

An impressive fall, a small version of Niagra falls. What a power water can have. The trail to the viewpoint is ok, about 5-10 minutes easy walk. Watch the musquito's!!

I think this was actually my favourite waterfall at Wells. The force is very impressive and you can get up and close to it. Short walk (10 minutes).

Another stunning waterfall. This one was a lot wider but not as high as the others we visited and it definitely did look like a mini Niagara Falls. Well worth the visit.

A little difficult to find when the walking tracks are covered in snow. Worth the searching though. Beautiful cascading falls, even when they are frozen.

We saw Spahat, Dawson and Helmcken falls and loved all 3 of them. The waterfall is just a short walk from the parking lot. Very impressive that you can walk up to the point where the water falls from the cliff.
