    Spahats Creek Falls

    by GuthrieColin Updated Feb 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Helmcken Falls get all the credit in this park. They are higher and have a larger flow, however, Spahats Creek Falls at 74 meters (246 ft) is quite impressive by itself. Had it not been in such company as the monstrous Helmcken it would have garnered an equally distinguished reputation. There is a trail which winds to the base of the falls which would give you a totally different perspective. If you do not want to spend that much time there the view from the observation deck is also quite nice.

    Waterfalls

    by david1982 Written Jan 25, 2007

    If you've come to Wells Gray after visiting Alberta you'll notice the sudden change from mountains to a mass of greenery - trees galore.

    For Wells Grey I stopped off at a Motel in Clearwater then drove the 68km up the road to see the various waterfalls along the way. Pics are attached.

    Saphat, Dawson and Helmcken are the falls along the way.

    Saphat is fairly regular, Dawson a wide loud falls after a longish walk, and Helmcken (apparantly higher than Niagara). Got a few good shots of the sunlight reflecting in the spray as u can see.

    Spahats Creek Canyon

    by GuthrieColin Updated Aug 19, 2005

    Nearly half a million years ago volcanic activity in the area began sending lava flows into this canyon layer by layer and cooled. The layers of these volcanic flows can still be seen today. In the more recent ice ages the Clearwater canyon was cut out of the surroundings by massive glaciers. As the ice age ended Spahats Creek began cutting into the layers of lava flows and created a canyon which it lies in today. The Walls of which provide you with a great view on the upper right hand side of the attached picture atop the cliff.

    Spahats Creek Falls - Under Construction

    by Redlats Written Oct 18, 2006

    Spahats Creek Falls is not actually in Wells Gray. It is contained in its own provincial park off the road up to Wells Gray. It is a spectacular falls in its own right.
