Chase Creek Falls

This is the only waterfall in this post that is not in Wells Gray Provincial Park, and it is the closest one to Kamloops. As the name would suggest, Chase Creek Falls is in the Village of Chase, east of Kamloops. The walk to the waterfall is very easy and takes less than five minutes.

From the parking lot, the trail takes you underneath the highway to the other side of the highway. A short walk along the creek leads to the waterfall.

From Kamloops: 40 minutes

  • Drive east on Highway 1 East/97 South toward Chase. Turn left on Coburn Street. Turn right on Paquette Road. The start of the trail is at the end of this road.

**Typing Chase Creek Falls into Google Maps does not lead you to the proper place, so be sure to follow the above directions, or see the map at the end of this post.**

Wells Gray Provincial Park

The following six waterfalls are all in Wells Gray Provincial Park.

From Kamloops: 1.5 hours

  • Drive north on BC-5 North for 120 kilometres. Once you get to Clearwater, you will reach a roundabout. At the roundabout, take the third exit to enter the park.

Triple Decker Falls

Triple Decker Falls is unique because it is a three-tiered waterfall. It’s a bit difficult to tell in the photos, but it’s so cool in real life!

The walk to Triple Decker Falls is short, but very steep. Near the beginning of the trail is a bunch of ski poles to use on the trail, donated by Youth to Christ. I highly recommend taking one if you don’t have your own walking stick. They definitely came in handy!

Less than 10 minutes down the trail is a sign on a tree pointing to a trail to the falls to the left. This is when the trail gets steep. It only takes about five minutes to get down to the waterfall.

From Clearwater: 5 minutes

  • Take the third exit out of the roundabout onto Clearwater Valley Road.
  • Drive 4.2 kilometres up Clearwater Valley Road. Just past Greer Road, there will be a concrete barrier on the left side of the road. There is a small parking area just past the barrier, seen in the first photo below.

Silvertip Falls

Moul Falls

Moul Falls is one of the most incredible waterfalls. The coolest part is you can actually go behind the falls! It is a 40-minute walk to the waterfall. A lot of the trail is wide and flat, but it does get narrower and rocky. To get down to Moul Falls, there is a staircase at the end.

To the right of the falls, there is a yellow sign, warning about the end of the trail. Next to the sign is a very narrow trail. This is the path that goes behind the falls. It is muddy and slippery, and you will get wet!

From Clearwater: 20 minutes

  • Take the third exit out of the roundabout onto Clearwater Valley Road.
  • Drive 20.6 kilometres up Clearwater Valley Road, and you will see a turnoff on the left side of the road, leading to a small parking lot.
