Just the noise as you get out of the car is staggering! The walk is great and the waterfall is something else! There is a short walk up to get to a higher platform which gets you closer to the fall NB *may sure you wear waterproofs as it can get a bit soggy from this platform :)

I guess I was expecting a smaller niagra falls...lol....as this is the 3rd tallest waterfall in Canada. Though high, was small (skinny if that makes sense!) nice to see, but not much to see. you are able to get very close to the base of the waterfall.

On our way to Squamish, we stopped by Shannon Falls for a little break with our two young kids. The hike to the falls is short, so it's easy to take children with you. The waterfall was beautiful and it was nice to stretch the legs and breathe in the nature before going on our way.

If you're going to Squamish it's definitely great to stop and have a quick walk to this waterfall. Nice in any kind of weather.

A short uphill walk from the parking lot reveals a magnificent water fall, Shannon falls, well worth a visit

glorious waterfalls and only a short walk from the road. the views and picture opportunites are great (Assuming you can get a shot without people risking themselves by climbing all over the falls) the parking is adequate and there is enough information to make it worth the stop actually visited august 2013 but only just getting round to reviewing (sorry)

The falls are lovely. However it's quite a steep walk to get to the falls. It would be helpful if there were some golf buggies that could be rented for a nominal sum, so that people who are elderly or who have difficulty walking can gain access to Shannon Falls and enjoy them as much as everyone else.

Shannon falls is a beautiful waterfall right off of the sea to sky highway. It is very convenient from Vancouver, which is nice but makes it very popular. It was a bit crowded when we were there. The base of the waterfall is not far from the parking area is an easy walk. It is definitely worth visiting if you... More

Easy little walk upto a platform in order to pose for photos. Washroom facilities are outhouses. Just had a procedure done on my knee, and should not have been hiking, but found it very easy to do just for the photo op.

I have a wonderful view of these falls from my living room, being a Squamite and all, and I am still awestruck on a daily basis. Up close, Shannon Falls is even more amazing. I believe it is the 5th largest waterfall in N. America(forgive me if I'm wrong). And, it's just 5 minutes south of Squamish, which was number... More
