Third tallest falls in BC! Great outing and fabulous thunderous spillage. Picnic tables, souvenirs and nice hiking trails.

This is a must see for anyone visiting the Sea to Sky corridor. It is a wonderful place to picnic, hike, walk or do whatever you like to do. The falls are amazing to watch, and the creek running beside it. It is truly beautiful. I live in Squamish, and I never get tired of seeing it and visiting it.

Saw the sign on the way up to Whistler or Skwikw as the locals call it and made a point to stop on the way back. It was well set up for the elderly or infirm to be able to get to the viewing platform to view the Falls as it is an easy grade via the path or the... More

We absolutely loved our stop at Shannon Falls. So close to the highway and such an easy walk to STUNNING falls. Just beautiful.

Even when living in the area I made a point of stopping at the falls for a quick walk. These falls are the single most accessible and most dramatic waterfalls I've seen anywhere in the world. For the brave, you can hike right up into the spray - just be prepare to get soaked - but on a hot summer... More

Impressive and photogenic when lots of rain and water coming off the mountain. There are picnic tables and a bit of a walk to get to the foot of the falls.

There's never a bad time to see Shannon Falls. In winter they sometimes freeze over making it a mecca for ice climbers. After a lot of rain they thunder down the mountain jetting far out creating an awesome display. On a hot summer day you can enjoy getting close to the bottom without getting wet but the parking lot will... More

Living in Squamish..Shannon falls is definitely something I am awed about each time I see it no matter where in town you are standing... durning the dryer seasons or the "wetter" ones. :) The walk to the falls is a nice mellow walk.. or you can go the back way behind the chief and have a beautiful hike to get...

On our drive from Victoria to Whistler we discovered this jem of a fall. Just of the road in Squamish and up some well trodden tracks. Walked up the trails to the base of the falls and could see them up close. There are a few trails that are off the beaten track made by explorers and climbers needless to... More

Short stop from Vancouver. On the way there you can see the rock climbers attempting the Chief face. The hike up these rocks is tough but the views are priceless.
