This is worth stopping off to see on the way up to Whistler. A 10 minute walk from the car park brings you to the viewpoint of this 1000 ft drop waterfall. Very nice indeed.

We stopped here for a short break between Whistler and Victoria. I thought the Falls were splendid.

Set in a provincial park, Shannon Falls are worth a look, especially if you hike up the short trail. The park also has refreshments and washrooms.

Very crowded and hard to find parking. A nice little hike up to the falls. Not much else to see or do. Pleasant park.

Walking the site, it becomes clear that some people have absolutely no respect for either wildlife or BC parks. Children stomp around on environmentally sensitive plant life and river banks while their parents look on and laugh. More staff needs to be stationed around the park to assure the public that the trees, shrubs, flowers and river are there and... More

Really pretty. Falls close to car park as an additional bonus in walking distance of Squamish Gondola. Base station has great café with wifi. Highly recommend. Great little shop at bottom as well. Must see

We really like Shannon Falls. Nice place to stop for a picnic lunch on our way up to Whistler. But the parking lot is too small so that is kind of a pain if you happen to be there around lunch time for a picnic...

It's a bit of a climb to the top vista for the falls, but take the time to go up. It's a wonderful view and worth stopping off on your way past.
