Description From Owner:
  • Gwillim River - After John Cole Gwillim (1868-1920), Professor of Mining at Queen's University, who made surveys in the area in 1919.
  • Hell's Half Acre - A slide area of immense boulders, some as big as a house, thrown helter-skelter, with many dangerous crevices. Named by men seeking a route for the Monkman Pass Highway.
  • Kinuseo Falls - Kinuseo is the Cree Indian word for 'fish,' the pools both above and below these falls being full of trout. The falls themselves are 180 feet or fifty-five metres high, not counting the cascades above.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
