If you’re chasing waterfalls this spring season, head to Kap-Kig-Iwan Provincial Park in Ontario for some stunning, up close and personal views. Feast your eyes on rushing rapids that plunge down to waterfalls in a gorgeous valley.

According to Ontario Parks, its name is said to come from the Ojibwe phrase “water running over the edge,”

And that’s exactly it. Englehart River plunges down white-water rapids, over several cascades and waterfalls within the park. The sight is definitely worth seeing.

But what if we told you that you can see them up close? One of Kap-Kig-Iwan trails, Hell’s Gate trail, guides you along Englehart River, towards incredible waterfall views.

Here you will see multiple waterfalls connected by rapids.

The Upland Circle Trail, which is a little longer than the first, is perfect for bird watchers and even offers scenic lookout points. Here you’ll experience beautiful views from above the valley.

“Perfect for novice hikers, these trails showcase the park’s beauty and reward visitors with stunning lookouts, with little challenging terrain,” shares Ontario Parks.

Kap-Kig-Iwan Provincial Park officially opens for the season on May 17th, 2024 and will stay open until September 15th, 2024.

It looks like your next adventure awaits!
