“Beautiful waterfall, short scenic drive from the highway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a must visit if you're driving to or from Whistler. If you're driving south from Whistler Village take the turn off on the right to the Whistler Olympic Park. It's about a 20min drive from the village.

The turn off to the falls is at the top of the road on the left. It isnt very well sign posted so look for a small gravel road you can see the lookout from where you turn into the road. No walk/hike required you can park right next to the lookout.

Drive carefully and keey an eye out for the many cyclists and many bears. Note there are lots of people who will stop (too close to) and look at the bears. Keep your distance. 100m is recommended. Also many drivers are, lets be honest, stupid and stop on bridges and in the middle of the road!

“First review?? No way! You people need to go there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Was planning to go to the Whistler Olympic Park, but I was too cheap to pay for the $10 entry fee. The falls entrance is on your left hand side when heading to the Olympic Park. Its probably a minute away from the entrance. Its the only turn off in the area. You cannot miss it.

To access the fall, turn into the side road and park your car and walk, its RIGHT THERE! No excessive driving / walking required.

Its on the way to the Olympic Park, even if you arent planning to go to park, you should still drive into the area. Bears sightings are very popular in the area.
