Clearwater-Helmcken Falls side trip Wells Grey Park (DH59) - Hot Springs / Rocky Mountains / Banff / Jasper / Kamloops

May 17, 2017

The Clearwater Valley. Land of pure, crystal clear streams, creeks and rivers. And since this remote road is virtually unpolluted by pylons, it’s also clear sailing all the way along the Clearwater River to Wells Gray Park’s Helmcken Falls. At almost three times the height of Niagara, it is the fourth highest waterfall in Canada. Admittedly, the DH’s curve count is nowhere near as spectacular. But with the right amount of wrist rotation, the turns that guide you through the forested vales and squat mountains won’t seem quite so tame. Is it worth making the detour up this consistently paved dead-ender? Clearly.
