Right next to the Sea to Sky gondola. The fall are a short 5 minutes walk on a wide dirt path. The fall were shown in one of the Twilight films. There is a viewing area for photos and a gift shop. Restrooms and parking are free.

Just off the Sea-to-sky highway is Shannon Falls Provincial Park. The area is a easy and quick hike to a beautiful waterfall attached to a scenic nearby river. I found the area to be quite relaxing and at least at the time I was there, uncrowded. The falls and surrounding area are very picturesque and fun to explore.

Beautiful waterfall and very convenient. Just exit and take a short stroll to see a wonderful waterfall. Usually one has to hike to see these but this is just off the highway and very short walk from the parking lot.

Good, steep trails and lovely scenery. Try taking the sea to sky trail if you are in good shape. You can have lunch up at the gondola.

Very nice. Well presented. Good access. Get there early! Easy enough to get a snap but why not take your dslr with a few filters and get a good photo to stick on your wall instead.

You've surly seen the falls from the road and standing under it is amazing. It's a quick walk from the parking lot so anyone and everyone can experience it
