I loved this hike. The trails start out wide and narrow as you get closer to your destination. The trail down to the waterfall is quite steep and short, but if that's not for you, you can see it from the overlook. You can also take a rocky trail behind the waterfall, which I highly suggest. We took our dogs on a Friday afternoon and didn't cross paths with too many people. The way back up from the waterfall, the steep section was much harder on the way up than I expected. We had also been hiking for 6 days straight at that point, so take that with a grain of salt. Definitely put this hike on your list, it was amazing!

Not really a hike but more a walk in the park, apart from the final meters. Not that scenic, waterfall is beautiful though. At the trail head it says 2-3 hours, but my gf and I have long Dutch legs so we did it in less than 1.5 hour including a 15 min. break at the waterfall.

Very way trail but falls make it so worthwhile. Parts of the track are a bit muddy

Great short walk. Gals are lovely and walking behind is wonderful. Make sure you have waterproof gear if doing that though. Trail is easy to the top of the falls but moderate from the top to bottom and back. Steep, damp and narrow, not recommended for unsteady etc

I love this trail simply because you get to go behind the waterfall at the end of the hike. It's very easy going except the last 0.2km steep walk down to the foot of the waterfall and back up. Great fun. You will get wet if you go behind the waterfall so come prepared.

This is a relatively simple woodland hike. I did it in September and it was muddy in places with a couple of fallen trees across the trail. To be honest the views of the waterfall from this side are nowhere near as good as the ones from the viewing platform and car park on the other side of the falls. If misty you will see very little. If your time is short in the park and you have time for only one hike I would recommend you drive to these falls take your pics and do the Mouls falls trail over this one. where you get to go behind the waterfall.

Beautiful hike where in the end, you can actually get behind the (pretty big) waterfall. As others have written, the hike is very easy and flat, with the exception of the steep descent in the end (which you'll have to climb back up again too).

During/after a rainy day it’s very muddy and the view on the waterfall will be very foggy. At about 1.7km there was a big tree blocking the path, which one could climb. At 4.0km you will have the best view, you can walk a bit further, but the view will not be better.

A short 0.9 mile flat walk from the carpark to see a very dramatic mini Niagara waterfall. Worth the stop to this forceful flow of water. The carpark is small and soon fills up in the middle of the day partic if its a RV heavy day. Even on a wet day on September it gets busy. Want it more to yourself? Then go early morning or late afternoon.

Such a cool experience! The walk down to Moul Falls is quite easy, it gets a little steep towards the falls - harder on the way back as it’s mostly uphill. The opportunity to go behind the falls is one you should not miss! You will get wet but it is worth it. About 2 minutes before the main lookout point at the top of the falls, there is a bridge to the right of the path. You will see a sign that says “private property: but can be used”. Across the bridge takes you to another hidden falls(McDirden Falls), which is a much more challenging hike. It takes about another 20 minutes to get down to the second set of falls that are much smaller but also an enjoyable experience.

Easy trail with an amazing view of Helmcken falls. It was rather misty when we arrived but that's mountain weather for ya. This view definitely beats the view point where there are several amateur photographers elbowing you to get to the best spot.

The trail itself is not that interesting and there is a tricky part just before the falls. But it's totally worth it to get up close to the falls. Must see when you're in the park!

Favourite trail in Wells Gray park! The fall and the opportunity to walk behind it is really worth the hike. The end of the trail is steep en rocky but safe.

Totally worth the hike. Going behind the waterfall was amazing and not as slippery as it seems.

If the weather is nice you have a great view of the Helmcken Falls without the whole photo-tourists at the normal viewpoint.

A wonderful hike. Steep descent the last section. There are metal stairs also. Walking under the falls was a real treat. It’s a must do in Wells Grey park.

This hike was great! Moderate up hill all the way to the camp, but nice trail, and well worth going.

Highly reccomend the trail. Very flat and packed, well marked, easy to follow. The falls is beautiful and well worth the 40 min hike down to it.

Along the river before arrival on waterfall. Two points of view or three if you cut in the woods. Beautiful waterfall.

We left under the mist, then the rain fell forcing us to shelter under the pines The fields were blooming with wild flowers! The path became muddy with a trickle of water that followed it after there was a rocky section that led us to the gazebo and a beautiful view of the two lakes We did not have much brightening but it was a beautiful hike Warning there are mosquitoes that enjoy the least discovery (even the face) as soon as you stop walking

Easy trail and at the end you get a chance to see a decent waterfall. The main attraction is an opportunity to go behind the fall
