I don't have a lot of information about Upper Goose Falls. I know that iti is more difficult to reach than Lower Goose Falls, which is found about 5 km downstream. At the upper falls, the river rolls over a wide, rounded ridge of bedrock, before making an abrupt right turn to continue downstream.

I don't know how to get to this waterfall yet. Visitors that can reach Lower Goose Falls could follow the road for another 5 km or so, to a spot about 1 km west from the upper falls. This road is mapped on google maps. A GPS may be needed to navigate through the woods.

On provincial mapping, there are several roads marked as coming in from the north or east side of the river. I have no idea if these roads are even passable. If you have been to Upper Goose Falls and can help me to improve this entry (should be easy!), please let me know.

This waterfall is coded as yellow because it is remote and I don't have information about how easily it can be visited. This is also in an isolated area. Secondary backroads can suffer from washouts and may be used by logging trucks coming at speed.
