Easy, well marked pathways

I took my four year old to the falls. It was easy to get to and the pathways around the falls were well maintained and easy to follow. Excellent views and photo opportunities.

We stopped off to see the falls when driving from jasper to lake Louise. The falls were spectacular in June as there was quite a good flow to the river. For me the most interesting part of the falls was the old discussed falls. Thousands of years ago the water changed course to the new falls. So you can now... More

The falls are magnificent in their splendor. Viewing and hearing the sound of cascading water splashing downward and over the fallen rocks along with forming rainbows at just about at every turn, is breathtaking. Be sure and notice how the water, over a great number of years, has carved through the rocks. The falls are only about a 40 minute... More

We were travelling from Jasper to Lake Louise and had heard seeing the Falls was a worthwhile detour and it certainly was. Given the melting snow, the Falls were impressive to see.

Beautiful place! Even on a cloudy and rainy day it was beautiful. I imagine it in winter how amazing it would be. Worth a stop.

The Athabasca Falls are spectacular and definitely warrant a 45 minute stop while traveling the Icefields Parkway in Jasper National Park. They are memorable because of the erosion of the rocks along the sides of the falls.

This is a very easy walk to see the falls from several angles. Signs explained the color of the water and the surrounding areas. If you were willing you could make an easy walk down to where the falls emptied into a large river. Handrails and solid steps made the time there a treat.

this was a quick stop while touring and hiking. Short walk to beautiful waterfalls. Can get very close to feel the power of the raging water.

June is a good time the melt waters are still coming, but not in huge spring quantities, all adds to the attraction. Take time to walk around and enjoy, away from the crowds.

Too many tourists stop when they see the falls, thinking that's all there is to see. Keep climbing higher until you are at the top of the falls for the most impressive views and the roaring sound of the falls. It's also a great spot to have your photo taken or to take a selfie.
