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

All the waterfalls in this area are great and this is no exception. Go and visit as its great. Sometimes you get to see a rainbow over the water. Take your camera

Definitely stop here. A very short walk and a very impressive view of the falls. A bit of a romantic area

A must stop outside of Jasper. You can get very very close to the falls and it is a great photographing opportunity.

We were here on an cloudy/rainy morning after a major storm the night before. The mountains were still hidden behind a low cloud cover. The water flowing through the falls was white and heavy. Easy walk from the bus. I recommend staying on the established trails as some of the area is fairly steep. Lots of photo ops!

We stopped on to way to Banff. It was really worth the stop. The car park is big enough and there are washrooms. It was very impressive. We really enjoyed the view. It was a rainy day so the flow was even more impressive. It is pretty noisy and you might get a little bit wet. It is only a... More

Excellent powerful falls easily accessible for all, including buggy's and wheelchairs. Thunderous sound of the falls and spray. Good parking within 100 metres more like 50 actually and so much better than Sunwapta. If you only do one set of falls in Jasper National park do these!

The falls are impressive and worth the stop. Much more accessible than some of the other falls I've visited.

Definitely a place to see. Short trails from parking lot w/ beautiful view on falls. OK, it's not Niagara, but very impressive too. We enjoyed this very much.

This falls is right off the Icefields Parkway and is absolutely breathtaking. There are pathways that allow you to meander along its route a bit and see the falls from various angles. At one point you can stop and feel the mist from the falls. This was our second trip here, and it was as exciting as the first. This... More
