Beautiful waterfalls and good spot for a picnic or to throw a frisbee around. There's a concession stand if you want some ice cream or souvenirs and you can also visit Alice Lake if you have time

Other spectacular fall on the road going from Whistler to Vancouver. Magnificent arrangement to picnic. A very well maintained path waits for you there. To see.

This is worth stopping off to see on the way up to Whistler. A 10 minute walk from the car park brings you to the viewpoint of this 1000 ft drop waterfall. Very nice indeed.

We stopped here for a short break between Whistler and Victoria. I thought the Falls were splendid.

Set in a provincial park, Shannon Falls are worth a look, especially if you hike up the short trail. The park also has refreshments and washrooms.

Very crowded and hard to find parking. A nice little hike up to the falls. Not much else to see or do. Pleasant park.

Walking the site, it becomes clear that some people have absolutely no respect for either wildlife or BC parks. Children stomp around on environmentally sensitive plant life and river banks while their parents look on and laugh. More staff needs to be stationed around the park to assure the public that the trees, shrubs, flowers and river are there and... More

Really pretty. Falls close to car park as an additional bonus in walking distance of Squamish Gondola. Base station has great café with wifi. Highly recommend. Great little shop at bottom as well. Must see
