We went just for the waterfall, seen it a few times already. Unfortunately due to lack of rain there isn't that much water flow right now. Still it is impressive and when running at full flow even more so. Great pictures

Went on a hot day to see the falls. Very small parking lot so be prepared to wait if it's a busy day. Lots of picnic space and grassy areas out front. Washrooms are new and clean! Hike up the mountain is steep but not too hard. Make sure to wear good shoes. Small gift shop sells trinkets, drinks, and... More

Shannon Falls has always been a stop we make on the way to either Squamish or Whistler as well as an easy day trip from Vancouver. Take a picnic, put on your hiking shoes or just stretch your legs. The waterfall is spectacular and so accessible, an easy walk from the parking lot and the forest around it is old... More

Very good paths which are nicely laid out. Accessible for wheelchairs, and a great spot for 'selfies'

Shannon Falls is well worth a stop if you are travelling along the Sea to Sky Highway. Appox 10-15 min walk each way if coming from the base of the Sea to Sky Gondola. First part could be a bit strenuous for those with low fitness levels. Some people were swimming in the lower pools of the waterfall.

Very much a worthwhile stop off, bit of a climb for those not so good on their pins, but good if you can make it, even when water levels low . Trails head off from here and there are limited refreshments. Best when not too crowded.

Pretty falls and easy to get to. You can hike a little to see them and splash a bit in the river below. Crystal clear water. If you want a bit more of a hike, you can go up the trail more. Now has a trail to the Sea to Sky gondola, but we did not take it. Nice family... More

The best thing about Shannon Falls is that you only have to walk a short distance to appreciate the wonder of Mother Nature and see the falls. While not a bu=ig falls it is beautiful and well worth the walk to obtain a photo.

The falls are pretty and just a short walk. But Along the way, there is signage indicating that the gondola ride is close by-- no distance is listed. After walking a long long way, we realized it must be a trail meant for strenuous hikers. Not fair, and a big disappointment for little kids hoping for a ride!
