How can you not want to stop in for a look when it's only a 15 min walk to see a great view like this at Elk Falls Park near Campbell River. When you get out of your car in the upper parking lot you can feel the energy from this 25 meter water fall. Dont be fooled in to thinking that you have seen it all once you make it to the falls there is much to see. The trail system in the park is well marked and is set up so you can do as much or as little as you like but the full hike should take around 3 1/2 hours. The shorter route i took was only around an hour. The route i followed passes the main falls before a nice walk along the river as you walk up to a smaller falls and a great area for a lunch.
