This week on our chasing waterfalls series we are headed North of Nanaimo towards Parksville about a 2 and a half hour drive from Victoria BC to Englishman river falls. The falls are a short drive from the parking lot through lush second-growth and old-growth Douglas fir, cedar, hemlock, arbutus and maple forests. The first falls you will come to is the upper falls which even in the dry summer roars down through a narrow rock canyon on one side of the bridge and on the other side of the bridge are serene waters.
A slightly longer and enjoyable hike through well groomed paths with stairs and railings leads to the lower falls. The waters here are a gorgeous blue and crystal clear. They would be ideal for swimming in the summer heat. There is a rock that sits in the center of the lower falls that looks like mother nature´s fine art. This park is definitely worth the trip from Victoria. We will be back and are interested in checking out the campground as well.
