Shannon falls is a beautiful waterfall right off of the sea to sky highway. It is very convenient from Vancouver, which is nice but makes it very popular. It was a bit crowded when we were there. The base of the waterfall is not far from the parking area is an easy walk. It is definitely worth visiting if you... More

Easy little walk upto a platform in order to pose for photos. Washroom facilities are outhouses. Just had a procedure done on my knee, and should not have been hiking, but found it very easy to do just for the photo op.

I have a wonderful view of these falls from my living room, being a Squamite and all, and I am still awestruck on a daily basis. Up close, Shannon Falls is even more amazing. I believe it is the 5th largest waterfall in N. America(forgive me if I'm wrong). And, it's just 5 minutes south of Squamish, which was number... More

Waterfalls are, in my opinion, that kind of things that can put you in a daze on the first sight. Nobody can pretend to be not impressed by a waterfall. The huge mass of water that produce a loud noise makes you understand all the power of water. The Shannon falls are not an exception at all: hidden behind some... More

I thought the walk was plain and the falls were nothing special. If your looking for that little walk to stretch your legs then it's a good place to do so.

I've been to Shannon Falls many times. The other day I was driving up to Whistler in the rain and as I was approaching the falls I could see that the amount of water coming over the falls was incredible. It was around 10 AM and there were no cars in the parking lot. The rain just let up and... More

Shannon Falls is a great waterfall just a few kilometres south of Squamish. The trail to the base of the falls is not far, the track loops around so that you come full circle. There is plenty of parking.

A great place to stop and take a break if you are driving from Vancouver to Whistler - any time of the year... it's free with plenty of parking and just a minute off of the road. The falls themselves are only a short hike from the parking lot - less than a half mile round trip with a slight... More
