Gorgeous!

The falls are a short drive from Jasper and def worth a stop if you are in Jasper. Beautiful falls with lots of great pic opportunities.

Called in for a second visit during a tour through the Rockies, previously visited in 1996 nothing had changed the falls were just as powerful and mesmerizing this year as they were 19 years previously, we will take these memories back to Scotland and share them with friends who aspire to tour as we did. Awesome Canada

Pretty falls, bad mosquitos! Take spray. Peaceful and great pictures. Lots of bears scratches on trees but didn't see them on trail. I heard lots of birds and something moving I woods but it never got close. Not too many people and parking was available. I went later in the day.

I visited the falls in October 2015 - they were not at their peak but still the walk around the falls was peaceful and the falls impressive. These are not Niagara Falls or Selfoss falls (in Iceland) big, but the scenery around them is beautiful and the walk from car park around the falls is easy for all abilities (be... More

Often neglected by tourists, therefore rather quiet. Beautiful falls and canyon. Good cafe at the turn off.

These were the first falls we visited on our Jasper - Banff adventure. Easy to reach and easy to see. You can walk further for different views and there are trials to follow as well. A fitting start to our jaw dropping trip along the Icefield.

We stopped here on the way back to Banff from Jasper. We ended up staying here way longer than we had planned on account of the sheer beauty and the lovely walk around the falls and canyons. I loved taking the time to enjoy the swirling waters and gorgeous scenery. Be sure to make time for this very accessible roadside... More

Just off of the Icefield Parkway a must visit if you are doing this drive. Spectacular waterfalls along the canyon, a relatively short walk to the lower falls and well worth doing.

My husband and I, with 51 other seniors were traveling around the Canadian Rockies and this was one of our quick stops. It was another amazing beautiful falls and we got lots of great pictures. Don't ask which one we loved the best. They were all the very best but some were bigger than others. We had gorgeous weather for... More
