Spectacular falls a short drive from Jasper. There is a great walk that is perfect for kids of all ages. The walk does involve a lot of stairs so may not be great for disabled people. The falls are very dramatic and the surrounding mountains are spectacular. Allow about 45 minutes to fully experience this natural wonder. It does get... More

This stop was one of the highlights of our trip in the Banff/Jasper region. What a beautiful spot with many lookouts to catch and feel the full power of the river. Highly recommend!

Beautiful waterfall and scenery just outside of the town of Jasper. Does not take long to visit and had an easy paved walking trail the entire way!

Make sure you stop to see these falls. The power of the water rushing through the rocks is amazing. It's an easy walk to see the different views.

One of the 'must visit' places on a visit up or down the Icefields Parkway, this is a quite spectacular waterfall. Best seen on a beautiful day. Parking difficult to find here on a busy summer day and lots of people to jostle with but worth the effort.

This was a great place to visit (especially with kids). Some of the parts on the paths are not so stroller friendly but others are. We had a great time and got some cute pictures. But the places is pretty popular so it could be crowded.

If you are in and around Jasper nd want a photo op with a good waterfall in the foreground and a great mountain backdrop, then this is the place for you :) It is not extra special in this area of jaw-dropping beauty but convenient location and ease of access will really cost you no extra time.

Wonderful views of the falls and great touristy attraction. If you want a quieter experience, go early in the morning and enter the area from the highway so you don't get roped into the "do not cross" propaganda. Rocks are slippery but the view is worth it.

Nice attraction to visit with the family (teen and 9 year old). There were informative plaques for ones who wanted to learn more about geology and how impactful the falls were to carving the landscape we see now. Nice view at the bottom of the river.
