Fantastic scenery within a short drive of Jasper. Ample parking and no entry fees. The falls may be small compared to other examples in Canada but the views are spectacular. Well worth a visit.

Crowded but with patience you can get your shots. Don't forget to look around for mountain goats! Sun position not critical.

Stopped briefly at the falls on a coach trip from Banff to Jasper. They are stunning! I wish we had had more time there.

Visited the falls as part of our Brewsters Icefields Parkway trip from Banff to Jasper and they are quite a sight. The amazing river suddenly descends down the gorges cut out by the water over thousands of years revealing splendid rock formations and different colours. Well worth the stop to visit.

These falls were our first stop as we drove south from Jasper. We found plenty of parking and it was an easy walk to the falls. There are many viewpoints for the falls, getting a different view from each one. There are a couple of viewpoints where you feel the mist. From one of the viewpoints we even saw a... More

We were on a coach trip for three days, and one of the trips was to the falls and they were lovely. All my family enjoyed the visit to the falls.

Stopped on the way home from jasper, plenty of parking there and it really only takes like a hour there if you want.

The falls are quite amazing in the middle of summer when the water flow is at a peak. There are trails from the top of the falls, a bridge across the falls and then trails down to the river below. I soent a good 30 minutes walking around, you could easily stay longer
