We've seen many beautiful waterfalls, but few that you can get so close to or that have so many interesting angles for viewing. What the river does, going through the rocks, is absolutely fascinating. A must see if you're going through the park.

This is a beautiful and amazing fall. It is definitely a must stop in Jasper National Park. There is a nice trail around it (on both sides) so that you can a nice view from all angles.

Athabasca Falls was a great stop for our group. The falls are beautiful, and there are many easily accessed view points. This would be an enjoyable experience for people of nearly all ability levels. Free with admission to National Park.

One of the highlight stops along the Icefields Parkway, this spectacular waterfall is worth a stop of at leat 30 minutes to appreciate the effects of water on rock. If you have time walk through the old canyon down to the water's edge where the noisy rush of water pours in to the peaceful river below.

The view is fantastic. Walkways allow for photos from all sorts of angles and you can get quite close. Definitely a place to stop along the highway.

Easy quick stop off the icefields. Short jaunt to see the falls. There is a very cool stairway built into an old Canyon so you can see how the water eroded the walls

These stunning falls are truly a sight to behold - the raw power of nature is incredible. Jasper National Park holds many wonderful sights and is a "must see" experience.

This is one of the loveliest waterfalls we've seen anywhere, especially as it is one surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery. Be sure to take the easy path walk down to the two viewing bridges, and continue up and to the left for a view where the water starts to plunge.
