Canim Falls and lava flows.

Canim Falls is a waterfall on the Canim River between Canim and Mahood Lakes in the Cariboo region of the Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada.[1] It is 25 m (82 ft) high.[2] The waterfall has eroded steadily upstream and created a 4 km (2.5 mi) long canyon cut into a lava plateau associated with the Wells Gray-Clearwater volcanic field. Canim Falls is inside the boundary of Wells Gray Provincial Park.

A trail from Mahood Lake Road leads to Canim Falls and nearby Mahood Falls.
