You drive up to an unassuming parking lot wondering if just beneath the surface lay something worth stopping here. You head up a paved trail and you find yourself greeted by one of Canada's most secretive treasures. In what seems like the middle of nowhere (unannounced by anything more than a modest sign that screams: "There is absolutely nothing to... More

The blue/green river, the waterfalls and the mountains beyond were spectacular. There were several paths you could take to see the falls from different angles.

This is a must see if you are the Icefields Highway. It's a nice way to take a quick break on the long road. The falls are a once in a life time visit and the glacier blue hue of the water is stunning.

These falls were worth stopping at, powerful water lots of good photos. The glacial water was wonderful with rainbows & gushing water. Watch where you walk as it is dangerous

Dont drive there just to see this. If it's on the way, you may spend some time. Nothing exceptional about it. You can find better places.

We started our journey on the Parkway with our first stop at the falls. They were beautiful and the power they have is amazing. We were there early and beat the tour buses to the site. There were a lot of people visiting but they have several spots to view them and see the power of the water on the... More
