Cheslatta Falls is another magnificent waterfall. There is a beautiful campground that is located about 500 meters from the trailhead on the opposite side of the road. The trail is 1.2km long (one way), there are markers on the pathway. The trail goes through a peaceful pine forest on a ridge overlooking the roaring Cheslatta River. It winds around and finally stops at the edge of a cliff directly beside Cheslatta Falls, allowing for a spectacular view.

Directions: To get there from Burns Lake take the Francois Lake Ferry to the southside, head towards Takysie Lake, turn left on Eakin Settlement Road, approx. 8 km south of the Nechako Reservoir.

Warning: The trail can be slippery when wet, as well as on the cliff by the falls. It is not suitable or safe for young children or pets.
