A 10m tall waterfall with a turquoise green river surrounded by the Canadian Rockies. This is a great short hike if you have finished exploring Mount Robson Provincial Park.

Once you get to the pull out and head down the trail it is a 500m downhill walk to the lookout point of Overlander Falls. The waterfall is 10m (33ft) tall and 30m (98ft) wide. On a clear day you can see tall mountains around you and if you look down stream away from the falls it is just as beautiful as the falls. In the winter and early spring you can get to the falls but I would recommend wearing snowshoes.

If you want to go on a longer hike, you can (If not just go back the trail you came down on). From the falls, the trail continues along the Fraser River to a bridge on Hargreaves Road, 5 km or 3.1 miles (round trip). This trail connects with the Lookout Trail. Guard rails protect you from steep sections with drop-offs.

Driving directions: Located 1.6 kilometres east of the Mt Robson Visitor Centre.

Trailhead coordinates: 53°01'52.3"N 119°12'28.7"W

Overall rating: 

Wow

I just went here yesterday so it was mostly frozen but it was so beautiful. The frozen falls were teal and the parts that weren't frozen were so powerful and roaring to the river below. It was well worth the slippery walk

Great Walk

It's a short walk that leads to a powerful waterfall. Trail is very well maintained and there is great viewing platforms.

Worthwhile short hike

I love this waterfall and where it is located. 100 percent recommend it to anyone needing a quick break while driving past.
