HISTORY AND NAMES
- Bedard Falls is the Proposed name of this waterfall
This waterfall nor the stream it is located along are known to have a recognized name. Along the Squamish FSR near where the falls are visible is a memorial plaque dedicated to one Darryl Bedard, so we've proposed naming the falls in following.
Its really too bad there isn't a clear view of the falls even from the Squamish Main, because it is a fairly noteworthy waterfall. If it weren't so deeply incised into the mountain it would almost certainly be on par with Shannon Falls in Squamish, if not better. As it is, the teasing glimpses through the trees and into small parts of the canyon will only stir your interest and in the end frustrate.
Location and directions
The falls are best seen from the Squamish Main around the 27 mile marker. The memorial is obvious and there is room to park there. The best views of the falls are had about 300 feet south of the memorial along side the river. You'll need to find a hole in the trees to photograph the falls well.

If you can find a hole in the trees to shoot though, the most visible portions of the falls are best shot within a range of 250-300mm. The falls face east and will be heavily affected by afternoon haze as the sun will go behind the ridge right behind the falls. Also be aware of dust kicked up by the heavy logging traffic on the road when changing lenses.
