Trail Name: Moul Falls
Distance: 6 km
Time: 1 hour
Cell Service: No
Trail Conditions: Half of the trail is an old road, so fairly flat and wide. A quarter is a single track through the forest towards the falls. And the final section is quite steep and slippery down the side towards the waterfall.
Highlights: 3rd highest waterfall in Wells Grey Provincial Park, and the only one that you can walk behind.
To get there: From Kamloops, take Hwy 5 North towards Clearwater. Continue straight along the highway for 120km. Once you reach the roundabout in Clearwater, take the third exit towards Clearwater Valley Rd. / Wells Grey Provincial Park. Follow this road for about 20km. The trailhead parking lot will be on your left and is very well signed and hard to miss. See it on Google Maps here.
The trailhead is to the right of the parking lot. You’ll pass through a gate, and make sure to close it as there are lots of cows in the area! The trail is linear, so you will be returning this same way. The trail starts off pretty flat and wide for the first 2kms. At the 2km mark, you will see a sign pointing you in the right direction to Moul Falls. From here, the trail becomes narrower and an increasing decline down towards the falls. Once you reach the viewing platform above the falls, follow the trails to the left to head to the bottom of the falls. Here the trail becomes more slick and steep, so be careful. Once at the bottom, you get a magnificent view of Moul Falls!
We believe this is a late summer hike as even now, the water coming over that ledge are incredible and we can’t image the surge of water that must barrel of the falls in the spring. That being said, during late summer this hike could be for everyone, as long as you take your time and be careful. Feel free to bring your bathing suit during the hot summer as this waterfall is a perfect place to cool off! And be sure to pack water with you as the hike out can be quite hot.
