Easy to find off of a map! Short trail! Beautiful scenery! We went here in the winter and it was breath taking so I can't even imagine in the summer! It was a nice small activity to enjoy, the falls were beautiful and the mountains superb as ever!! Really enjoyed coming here :)

You don't have to be there for long to get great views. The trail is short, but the falls are breathtaking.

Very impressive waterfall with walking paths. the nice spots for taking photos are always filled with mist from the fall so a go-pro or something else waterproof you can quickly wipe down is the way to go. If you have a choice of time for the visit, early morning or later afternoon are best as during the day, this place... More

Fabulous scenery. So dramatic! A must see. If you can fit it in it is not to be missed. Look for bears.

We stopped at Athabasca Falls en route from Jasper to Lake Louise. A boardwalk takes you along the river from where the rapids begin to the thundering torrent that is the main attraction here. Along the way, you experience many vantage points and photo opportunities. Tour was by SunDog, excellent driver/commentator, nice clean little transport.

Oh so beautiful. You take a walk down and just the size of the trees and the sound of the water gushing/rushing is so incredible.

we went as part of a snow mobile safari and stopped off here as part of the whole day trip, which included breakfast and a superb buffet dinner at the end, with coffee served from a huge enameled pot - just like in the westerns on TV.

This thundering waterfall is amazing to see. Free to visit and just off the main Jasper-Banff road. Thousands of tonnes of water pouring through a narrow neck in the river. Worth a look!
