Smith River Falls are visible from the small parking area approximately 2.6 km off the Alaska Highway. This road is gravel and is not recommended for large RVs and trailers.
For those with a more adventurous side, take a short hike (500 meters) down from the parking area to the base of the falls. A wooden staircase used to lead the way down, however it has not been rebuilt since destroyed in a forest fire. Be careful as the path can be quite steep in places.
Once at the bottom, you will find a beautiful view of the two tiered water fall and fantastic Arctic Grayling fishing in the pool at the bottom of the falls. Fly fishing is recommended during late summer.
