Monkman Provincial Park Near Tumbler Ridge BC

Page 2 of 2


Location:
Northeastern British Columbia, approximately 63 kilometers Southeast of Tumbler Ridge, near the end of Murray River Forest Service Road.

Liked: Short and easy paths to the waterfall viewing platforms, the ability to get to the bottom of the waterfall, shapes created by the spray from the Falls, quite decent access via Murray River Forest Service Road.

Of note: Remote area, numerous potholes on the short asphalted stretch of the Murray River FSR before the gravel road begins.

19. The appearance of Kinuseo Falls on this day reminded of a huge flow of water from the gates of a dam. We took numerous photos from the middle and bottom of the path to the bottom of this waterfall, and what follows is a compilation which shows a sort of a sequence, which starts from the water hitting the rocks below, and ends with the spray forming various shapes as it dissipates.

Here is our Video of the Falls View from the Middle of the Path:

34. But wait, there is more! If you would walk for 25-30 minutes along a path which begins at the upper viewing platform right behind this totally perplexing sign, you would see Kinuseo Falls from yet another vantage point.
