“Brill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Stunning place to visit, I was here during that start of thaw and water gushing over the falls. Area is very safe and has good walking paths.

“Stunning falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The whole view of seeing the falls, an extended lake with the backdrop of snow capped mountains was stunning, especially to a 'Brit'.

“Low water conditions, unique water flows, spectacular scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The water flow was low, fingers of water running down the falls. Situated behind the Banff Springs Fairmont Hotel. A must see if in Banff. Spectacular views of the falls, downstream river, and mountains in the background!

“Amazing”

Amazing waterfalls! Nice to go in Summer time where waters are free flowing. Nothing much to do here except taking pictures.

“Worth the Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We loved this Hike! It's perfect for the day you arrive and just want to explore around town a little bit. As it is quick and easy to get to.

It you go past town and turn left after the bridge there is a trail that runs along the river, it's super quiet and very beautiful. But be warned towards the end there are lots of stairs, which for us was ok, but we noticed people stopping and resting. Also there are great views of the Banff Springs Hotel!
