Canim - Mahood Waterfall Trail in 100 Mile House, South Cariboo-Chilcotin Region, British Columbia, Canada is a short, leisurely 1 kilometre hike along a very well maintained wheelchair access hiking trail leading to two, yes two, spectacular waterfalls. The easy grade hiking trail begins near Canim Lake just down from Wells Gray Provincial Park located east of the community of 100 Mile House, British Columbia, Canada.

The short 1 kilometre hiking trail leading to the waterfalls explores along a high ridge overlooking a river valley passing by steep rock cliffs and canyon walls. Although the trail is wide and very well groomed, please keep away from the edges as the trail drops off quickly to the canyon below. When hiking with children, keep them close.

From the trailhead it is a short 0.5 kilometre hike to the first falls - Mahood Falls - which is a 15 metre (49 feet) waterfall flowing from a Mahood Lake outlet creek. Once at the falls there is a fenced viewpoint, peering out through the trees looking straight out at the falls.

Continue hiking along the same trail for a few more hundred metres and you will come across another fenced area overlooking Canim Falls which is a 20 metre (66 feet) waterfall created from an outlet creek from Mahood Lake.

Look closely to your right when visiting Canim Falls viewpoint and there is a rough, well hidden, access trail leading down to the base of the waterfall. The route is steep and is covered in loose gravel and exposed tree roots. At the base of the falls, the views take on a whole new feel surrounded by waterfall mist.

There is a pit toilet, bear proof garbage bins and some directional signs marking the trail located at the trailhead. Parking for the trail is limited and along the road. Once finished exploring the Canim - Mahood Waterfalls take some time to explore Deception Falls which is located up the road deeper into Wells Gray Park.
