Beautiful Falls. Easy to walk on paved path for teens to seniors in our group. Reminded me on a smaller scale here to Tremmelbach falls in Switzerland, except these are free. Our entire group enjoyed this stop. Falls are short walk from parking lot.

The falls themselves are spectacular but we also love to hike down to the bottom and take in the beauty of the lake!

Fantastic experience, the falls were roaring again, every time we have visited we've been lucky enough to see a spectacular display at the falls

Good stop off whilst driving along Icefields Parkway. Small falls with walk ways and viewing platforms. It took us about 45 minutes to do the whole falls. If you are making a special trip to view some falls I recommend Maligne falls which are stunning.

Superb waterfalls with many viewing points. Worth stopping to visit, quite a lot of parking. Washrooms are interesting

What with these falls and Maligne Canyon in the same area it seems you are spoilt for spectacular waterfalls and canyons. Nothing more to add-we too saw these falls as part of a Brewster ice field parkway tour to Jasper. Well worth a stop, although they can be viewed in 10-15 minutes.

We weren't overly impressed to be honest. the falls are mighty and the setting is nice but still failed to hit the spot.

To stand so close to this powerful waterfall gives you a true sense of the energy that powers through the gouge and valley. It makes it easy to see how the rocks have been shaped over the years.

A must stop! Definitely go down all the way, so you can see what the water has done to the rock. Great pics when the weather is right!
