A short drive from Tete Jeune Cache (junctions of Highway 16 and Highway 5) in British Columbia, is one of several waterfalls in the Northern BC region. The falls are a great place to stop for all travelers and those looking to taking a break on their drive to the Alberta border. The falls are a part of the Fraser River and plummet approximately 10 meters over rocks and loose trees that have collected over the years. There is a rest stop on the side of Highway 16 to access the falls and BC Parks estimates 1/2 hour return trip, although depending on the size of the group and the time you want to spend at the falls, it may take a shorter or longer time. There is a fabulous, well-maintained viewing platform with some points coming right to the edge of the fast moving river! If you are lucky, you may catch some whitewater rafters portaging over the falls! A must see stop on your way across Northern BC!
