Englishman River Falls.

Photobucket

Located near Errington and a hop skip and a jump away from pretty Parksville and Qualicum. The falls are best viewed in the spring with the roaring Englishman river at full tilt. There are multiple hiking trails along the river and among the forest. There is about 3km of on trail use to explore. The paths follow the river and lead to the upper and lower falls, providing vies of the canyon and waterfalls along the way. The main trail crosses the river in two places, offering visitors a bird's eye view as the water plunges down the narrow rock canyon toward quieter waters below.

During the summer a crystal clear pool at the base of the lower falls turns into one of the best swimming holes in the area, and the whole park becomes a prime viewing area for the return of spawning salmon in the fall.
