The Beauty Creek trail is a seemingly-unmaintained route along the shore of Beauty Creek.
The trail follows the creek up a canyon past a constant series of waterfalls to Stanley Falls at the end.

In the afternoon, the weather lifted a bit, so we headed to Beauty Creek to check out the waterfalls.
This is a great walk, as there are a ridiculous number of falls in a short distance - all quite nice, and many with great viewpoints.

Everyone take some photos!
