Nice walk, beautiful sights. There was a couple that climbed down the rocks and sat there smoking pot and taking photos of themselves. The smell wafted up where families were walking.

Englishman River Falls is a beautiful spot for hiking or swimming in the river. The river is very cold but the water is clear and gorgeous. The Falls are very pretty. Nice place for families and an easy hike around the trails.

Just a short hike from the parking lot is the incredible English River Falls. The view from the bridge that traverses the river is breathtaking! My husband has had both his knees replaced, and he had no trouble with this hike.

Englishman River in scenic Parksville British Columbia was very close to where we were staying on Qualicum Beach. Lovely walk thru the woods and the falls sat and had a picnic.

The water is cold but worth it in the heat of summer. There is a great jumping rock to access a crystal clear deep pool which was a lot of fun.

Most likely due to it being a wet area. We were there early in May and it wasn't an issue but I think it would be prime breeding grounds.
