Definitely worth a stop. Luscious green walkways and impressive waterfalls and river. Nice stop. No concession stands. Often busy.

Accessible either North or South bound on the 99, there is plenty of free parking. There are picnic tables and a large open space that can be reserved in advance for big groups. There are restrooms but there were being renovated when we visited and temporary facilities are in place. The small shop/office was also closed while we were there.... More

On a nice spring or summer day, while driving up on the Seat to Sky highway towards Whistler, it is not too hard to pass by this hidden gem, tucked away just past the official Squamish sign on the right side of the road. But one you find it, you will most likely make a special event stopping by every... More

Cascading from such a height the falls never disappoint. Best in Spring with winter snow run off. Cool on a hot summer day. Always lovely.

Stopped off here on our way to Whistler. Well signposted off the highway 99. Large car park and a short walk to the base of the falls. Worth the walk up to the higher part.

Shannon Falls was a little hard to see, and we ended up only being able to see the top portion of the falls. They are spectacular, but not being able to see the entire falls was a little disappointing. I wouldn't make a special trip to see the falls, but it is worth a stop if you pass by.

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.
