When you find yourself in Smithers next, I recommend that you make the stop to visit the beautiful Twin Falls located just outside of downtown Smithers. It is a nice easy hike into the park where the falls are located and then from there you must prepare to be amazed! The two falls, thus the name of them, are both magnificent in their own right but yet totally different from the other. They are both really tall waterfalls but one of them (pictured) has a much higher flow of water coming from it. You can hike up and stand right below the falls and get completely soaked from the spray from them. We were absolutely soaked from all the spray, but since it was a beautiful warm day it was easy to get dry again by just stepping away from the falls and back into the sun. It’s a really nice hike up towards the falls across many rocks and the slow areas of the river from the waterfall, or you can stick to the path that they have there. Any level of experienced hikers can do the trail and probably enjoy it just as much as I did. Get out there and experience the magnificence that is Twin Falls!
