This weeks #WaterfallWednesday is from Wells Gray Provincial Park.
Wells Gray Provincial Park is a large wilderness park located in east-central British Columbia, Canada. The park protects most of the southern, and highest, regions of the Cariboo Mountains, covers 5,250 square kilometres and is British Columbia’s fourth largest park.
Wells Gray is known as ‘Canada’s Waterfall Park’ and is home to 39 named waterfalls!
This past September I spent the Labour Day long weekend at Wells Gray Park and this image of Rainbow Falls was captured near the shores of Azure lakes while on a day trip tour with Clearwater Lake Tours.
Exploring the Waterfalls of Wells Gray Park
Wells Gray has something to offer every outdoor interest: lush alpine meadows, excellent birding and wildlife viewing opportunities; hiking for every ability as well as canoeing and kayaking. I have been to Wells Gray Provincial Park many times over the past few years and still haven’t come close to visiting all of the waterfalls or hiking all to the trails in the park.
If you are planning a trip to Wells Gray I recommend picking up the book – Exploring Wells Gray Park by Roland Neave.
As BC’s fourth largest park, Wells Gray is a prime place to do some exploring and this extensive guide is perfect to find all the trails, lakes, campgrounds and access routes. It includes information about the remote northern area of the park, and detailed descriptions with GPS data for 48 trails. There is also in-depth guides to canoeing Murtle Lake, climbing Garnet Peak, and exploring Trophy Mountain. The book also includes 250 photos and 12 maps.
