Beginning near Kinuseo Falls this short hike is among our Top Ten and has been a popular destination since it’s discovery in 1999 by the Helm and Tattersal families.  This Geosite resides inside Monkman provincial park and along with Nesbitt’s Knee and Barbour Falls can make the drive to Kinuseo Falls into a full day.

There are many stops at this Geosite so be sure to stop by our Visitor Information Centre in downtown Tumbler Ridge to grab a paper copy of the guide (also available as a pdf file).
