Definitely my favourite falls so far. It's just beyond gorgeous. Camping there with my husband would be so cool.

This easy to miss, but right off the road natural wonder offers a great view of an impressive waterfall. A small picnic grove nearby provides a nice respite from the village. The parking lot is literally just a few steps from the falls viewing area. Recommended.

The falls were OK, but I'm glad we didn't have to travel very far to see them. There are so many more stunning areas. One of the primary reasons we made the short drive was in hopes of seeing bears, but we did not see any.

Great view, right off the main road. There isn't much there besides the viewing patio and one picnic table, but the view is easy to access, no climbing and the falls are clearly visible.

See the falls almost from your car. One of the rare instances where you can park your car and walk 50 feet and see great falls up close.

We stopped at Alexander Falls on the way up to the Olympic Park which hosted the Nordic events. It was a nice little stop, a crashing 3 part falls, which has many features that keep you watching. Nonexistent walk, can jump out the car and right onto viewing platform. I'd say this one is accessible to a wheelchair, a few... More

Checked out these falls on route to the Olympic park. You drive a short distance on a gravel road and parking lot. You park and stand on a viewing platform and there are the falls. They were pretty. I am sure they are really nice in spring time with more water. Great photo opportunity here. Allow 20 to 30 minutes... More

very nice waterfall that you don't have to hike to or even walk to. You can drive there and park and watch them from you car if you want. Its about 20 mins from Whistler village by car
