Highlight Hikes in Bella Coola
Though it may not qualify as a "hike," one quick walk in Bella Coola is easy to reach and reveals a truly hidden gem.
Just a five-minute drive west from town, visitors will find the Clayton Falls Recreation Site, home to a very picturesque waterfall. Depending on the season, the falls can have a thundering apron, or gentle cascading rivulets between the "Thousand Faces" – the name given by the Nuxalk people to the smooth, worn rock faces.
