Stopped here on my way up to Squamish and so glad we made the pit stop. Shannon Falls is beautiful and such an easy add on to any Sea to Sky adventure. The falls are impressive and the trails are so accessible! Didn't have enough time here so looking forward to getting back and exploring around the falls

Very fresh forest enclosed viewing stand gives one a feeling of health.... a breath or ten and just take in nature at it cleanest. The gondola is within walking distance so another wonderful experience on the same excursion.... then into Squamish and you have it all with the Railway Heritage Park... soon to be Museum of Logging and just plain...

Shannon Falls is a great place for everyone! If you are just looking to stretch your legs on a short walk, want to hike to Sea to Sky Gondola, climb to the base of the falls or very occasionally Ice climb. As a local we still make point on stopping to check out the falls in the rainy season to... More

A great climbing area and also a great hiking area. Nothing too challenging here but the sights are wonderful even in the winter. If you're lucky enough you'll see the falls freeze enough that Ice climbers start to go to town on it.

A short walk from the car park to views of the falls. There were pit toilets (very clean) near the car park. The falls were stunning. I saw a grey squirrel? I think that is what it was... An easy walk, worth the stop.

Paved pathway made these falls easily accessible for stroller. It is so beautiful! There are also picnic tables and restrooms making it a great pit stop during a roadtrip. The weather for us was overcast and a bit fresh but the walk is short and well worth it.

Take the side trip to visit here if in the area, well worth it. Spectacular scenery and very interesting trees. Free parking

The hike is easy with a little bit of elevation gain, but nothing to be concerned with. You can see the top of these falls from the road, and seeing them upclose is stunning. Definitely worth a stop!

Do yourself a favour and be sure to make a stop and visit this truly beautiful waterfall. It is an easy walk from the carpark. Stand on front of the falls and enjoy its' sheer beauty but also make sure you walk up the steps on your left (when standing in front of the falls) to a slightly elevated level... More

You could sit and watch these forever. Well worth the short walk to them. Make sure you go all the way to the top level . The path up the stairs is short.
