Situated along the pristine Englishman River north of Nanaimo, Englishman River Falls Provincial Park features two stunning waterfalls cascading along the descending riverbed into a deep canyon. This picturesque destination, set amid a lush old-growth and second-growth forest of Douglas fir, cedar, hemlock and maple, is an ideal location from which to explore and appreciate the incredible diversity of south central Vancouver Island, including nearby Cathedral Grove, the Pacific Rim, and the sandy shores of Parksville and Qualicum. The park has a large day-use area and campground and contains several hiking trails that meander through the forest and along the river. Visitors can expect spectacular views along the way, particularly from two bridges that cross the river where it plunges down the narrow rock canyon toward quieter waters below. The lower falls end in a deep crystal-clear pool

My 1.5 year old son, my wife and I needed a little walk in the wonderful BC nature and heard about this little gem. the trail starts from the parking lot and has a great loop that's well maintained and easy to walk on. My son loved stopping to see the huge trees and bridges. the falls are beautiful and definitely worth the stop. if you need a quick hour walk/hike, this is a great option to consider.

Nice stay but could have better spaced out campsites

Awesome views of the water fall and an easy walk.

Very beautiful! Nice short loop.

It was wonderful, waters quite high but didn't effect any of the trails. just a nice and easy wet coast morning!

easy hike, and easy enough to get off path and really take in the views.

BC's narrowest canyon, beautiful waterfalls and a great river at the bottom to splash around in, what's not to like?

Amazing waterfall, easy hike!

Beautiful, easy stroll. Would love to come back here with my kids; they would love it. Lovely waterfalls and greenery. Very quiet - only passed about 4 people the entire time. We are used to long hikes with extreme elevation in the Rocky Mountains, so on an exertion level I rate this as very easy. We ended up doing the loops two times through to get enough exercise.

Easy stroll with the dogs. Played down at the riverbank for a while. Loved the furry trees!
