July 30, 2012: pretty hot after a long hike. My face was so tanned!


Sylvia Falls is one of numerous waterfalls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, in Clearwater, BC. It’s also one of the few falls that you can hike all the way to the base and stand under the falls (check also Moul Falls). In summer, the water level tends to be high and turbulent. In autumn when the water is shallow with slow flow, some people actually walk down to the middle of Mahood River and stand on top of Sylvia Falls!!! Read below for map and driving direction.
