Over the past long weekend me and my family went to Cheslatta Falls. The Falls are about 90 km southwest of Vanderhoof and the roads are gravel but in very good condition.
It is about a 3 km hike round trip thats in and out of the falls and they are in good shape and it must be a pretty easy hike because my 70 year old grandfather and 67 year old grandmother can do it.
After the hike there is a beautiful rec site that is in good shape and has picnic tables you can also camp there if you would like to. I dont recommend to take young children there as the water is very dangerous and there are steep cliffs with no fences holding them back.
There also is no swimming there but if you drive 15km East of there you will find Kenny Dam and Knewstub lake which kids and adults can swim in. If you are in the area I srongly recommend to go to this magnificent falls and enjoy a day out in the wilderness. Editor's note: Learn more about hiking near Vanderhoof here.
