Pisew Falls Provincial Park, Manitoba

Pisew Falls Provincial Park in Manitoba is located at the approximate mid-point between of Wabowden and Thompson Manitoba.

Pisew Falls

Located 700 km North of Winnipeg, Manitoba, 500 m from Highway 6, Pisew Falls is near Kwasitchewan Falls, Manitoba's highest waterfall which has a naturally occurring year round flow.

"Pisew", is translated from the Cree language meaning Lynx. It was named so because the sound of the hissing water sounds like a Lynx.
Here the Grass River drops 13 m/42.7 ft. and changes direction and jets down through a gorge. A boardwalk leads to observation platforms overlooking Pisew Falls. Another 0.5 km/.3 mi. trail leads to the Rotary Bridge over the Grass River directly below Pisew Falls. The bridge has access to a 22 km hiking trail leading down the river to Kwasitchewan Falls, Manitoba's highest point.
Backcountry campsites at the end of the trail enable one to stay overnight.
