About Location

James Bruce Falls is a tall, semi-seasonal waterfall that stems from a small snowfield perched on top of the lofty mountains rising out of the head of Princess Louisa Inlet. Chatterbox Falls on Loquilts Creek is the most commonly known waterfall in the area, and most definitely more of a focal point, but this lofty cascade is just as visible. The small icefield produces two streams, which fall parallel to one another, one usually drying up by July. The falls don't exhibit a large volume, flowing best during the rainy winter and during the spring snowmelt, but the remaining segment does appear to persist all year. The falls don't officially have a name, so one of our surveyors, Richard Van Leersum, has proposed this name for his grandfather, who seeded his love for waterfalls as a child. In the first link below, James Bruce Falls is the major tributary in the background, with Chatterbox Falls in the foreground.
