  Helmcken Falls
by MichaelFalk1969

Helmcken Falls is Canada's fourth highest waterfall: 141 metres high, about three times higher than Niagara Falls! From the park entrance, it is roughly 1/2 hour to the (rarely ever crowded) viewing platform of the falls. On the way, you pass the so-called "mushbowl" when crossing the Murtle River, a splashing river rapid not to be missed.
