“great place if traveling through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

another great Canadia freebie, the footpaths have been intertwined around the falls so you are always close and at some point the concrete merges with the landscape seamlessly

“must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

On way to jasper from Calgary, it is around 1 km drive inside from highway- must see this awesome carving of canyon by nature. The mist smells so fresh ahhh, really peaceful and you only hear the water gushing at very high speeds.

“Stunning in winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The road to carpark was closed for the winter but it's only a short walk to the falls. Some of the falls were frozen which was spectacular to see.
