5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We came by here in early evening and it was very dramatic and beautiful. Nice evening sunlight shining on the distant mountain vistas.

“Spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We walked along the river from the town and saw the falls at a different perspective than previously. Would suggest doing that rather than just taking the car and looking from there.

“Excellent stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This was a very nice place to sit back and watch the force of the falls. Despite it being very busy when we went, with short walks it was possible to escape the crowds.

The area offers views of the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, as well as some of the river that flows in and out of the falls.

“in full flood-fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Very pleasant walks by the falls, both sides there had been a lot of flooding while we were there so some restrictions. The falls weren't really visable as the water was so high.

“Really Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The trail is easy and gravel. Perfect or families. Cross the footbridge for the best views. We loved the green water.
