Rearguard Falls Provincial Park near Valemount, BC
Rearguard Falls Provincial Park is a scenic gem just off of the Yellowhead Highway. We discovered it by accident as we were driving along Highway 16, near a small town called Tete Jaune Cache in British Columbia, Canada (not far from Valemount, BC). This scenic jewel has a viewing platform for a stunning view of the waterfalls. During the fall, you can even watch the salmon run adventure, if you're lucky! The hiking trail is not very long nor strenuous, only about 1/2 hour return trip although you will want to leave extra time to enjoy the view. It is a lovely little walk and worth a visit.
