On a busy day, the hike from the overflow parking across the street will be longer than the hike to see the falls. But it's definitely worth it.

This stop has 2 important elements, a gorgeous drop of a waterfall in amongst a thick forest. Who could ask for more? There is a trail that takes you to the base camp for the Sea to Sky gondola, perfect for to-ing and fro-ing!

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.
