Overlander Falls, only one of the many featured inside the boundaries of Mt. Robson Provincial Park may be one of the most popular. Located along the yellowhead just 14km East of the HWY 5 & 16 Junction it is perhaps the best rest stop in the area during scorching hot summer months. On a recent trip to the area, myself and a friend discovered Overlander Falls on our quest to find a cool place out of the heat. On 30+ summer days the cool breeze and light spray from the waterfall produces the ultimate relaxing spot. The falls themselves lie down a small five minute walk from the road, which is perfect for a quick escape from the heat. We were very thankful we came upon them during our trip and suggest anyone passing through the area have a quick peek at this beautiful and refreshing waterfall.
