Especially is you are not a hiker and do not get to see falls like this often. Super easy access, magnificent falls. It is busy though, try to go early to avoid the crowd ....

We have been here several times, love the falls and the view! Well worth the drive! Walking on the paths is flat unless you take the path to the lake.

The falls were beautiful. Very short hike from the parking area which makes for easy access. No charge. Many photo ops. Do no miss these falls if driving highway 93 between Banff and Jasper.

First time visit and we were dazzled by the beauty of the falls and enjoyed watching some rafters head down the lake. Our youngest is three, so we had to by extra mindful of him, but the walk was great and the scenery incredible. We'll most definitely return!

This has got to be on your list if you are 'doing the Rockies'. Make sure you walk to the end to see the second part of the falls.

Very nice scenic location and short walk in that our elderly companions had no trouble with! I do prefer Maligne Canyon myself, if I only had time to stop in one place, Maligne is too difficult for seniors to walk as steep going on the way back up. So this is a nice alternative.

Breathtaking. Be sure to take your camera with you and go right to the bottom to get the full experience.

Quite nice, as always it is walking to the falls themselves that adds to the overall experience.Also by going to these areas it gives you the chance of seeing animals. We saw 3 deer.

Beautiful Falls. Easy to walk on paved path for teens to seniors in our group. Reminded me on a smaller scale here to Tremmelbach falls in Switzerland, except these are free. Our entire group enjoyed this stop. Falls are short walk from parking lot.

The falls themselves are spectacular but we also love to hike down to the bottom and take in the beauty of the lake!
