The two waterfalls located between Canim and Mahood lakes are worth visiting even though there is very little hiking involved. A 1 km walk brings you to the rim of the Canim River gorge, the walls of which have the same reddish lava-layered composition as Painted Chasm north of Clinton and Helmecken Falls. From here the trail heads left up the canyon where you can view 15 m-high Mahood Falls on one of two streams draining from Canim Lake. A little farther along, the more spectacular Canim Falls- actually two falls split by a mid-stream island- tumbles 20 m to the river. The base of the falls is accessible by a steep forest trail on the right.
