The water fall is beautiful and the park is rather easy to access. My only negative is there isn't much of a park besides the waterfall itself. Still, very worth stopping for an hour or so to take it in.

I stopped at the Shannon Falls on my way from Vancouver to Whitehorse. The Falls are located just 3min away from the parking lot and are very beautiful to watch and good for a short visit! So don't miss them

We were on a tour and this was one of our stops. Only there for a short while but the views were amazing. Walk up even though not far was very icy ( we went in January) but worth it.

Shannon Falls has been one rest stop for my entire life while driving the Sea to Sky hwy even before it was called that. The waterfall is a site to see well worth stopping for and is free to see. I think the parking is also free but that may have changed in our world of governments needing more money.

We have been visiting this park every year!... Wealways loved the settings, all the picnic areas, paved way to lower deck and the new stairs to upper deck. The view of the falls is stunning, in winter as well as summer. Today was even more awsome(ess?) as half of the fall was frozen and only the left half was flowing.... More

Driving from Vancouver to Whistler is always amazing just for the scenery alone. Add a stopover at Shannon Falls for a quick hike and some amazing photo ops. My pregnant wife and I stopped over here and walked around for a bit and it was well worth it. Make sure you stop over in Squamish too for some great food.... More

This is a natural wonder in a beautiful setting. Take a beautiful drive about 1 hour out of Vancouveron the road to Whistler. The falls are accessible with an easy walk and if you have time you can hike in and enjoy the total beauty.

I come to shanon falls every year, but this time I went after it had snowed and it looked like narnia.So beautiful. but besides that, its a great spot to rest up and a short distance from vancouver. I like how the park staff can be helpful when they're present on site.

A short hike from Stawamus Chief will bring you to Shannon falls. A good size platform leaves lots of room for you to get a good view and some pics of the 1,000 foot (335 meters) falls. This would be a nice outing for those with limited time and as part of the Stawamus Chief gondola in the same area.... More
