Beautiful area of Jasper, Alberta.

Been here a couple times over the years, and honestly even on the rainiest of days it is astonishingly beautiful. Don't miss your chance to walk around this area!!

This water fall is not far from the town of Jasper. The waterfall is amazing and the canyon that the water flows through once its gone over the falls is a masterful piece of are created by nature. It is a must see while in Jasper.

The falls a worth a visit we we re driving past and went in , glad we did not miss the falls. The way the water has eroded the surrounding rocks is awesome

We spent about an hour at the falls enjoying the warm weather.awe The mighty Athabasca never fails to impress as it tumbles over the falls. Plenty of opportunities for good pictures and a nice place to stretch your legs.

part of a package with trafalgar tour. amazing sight and sound, block out time to enjoy, explore and visit the bridges over the falls. we were very rushed on the tour. would have liked to have been able to "soak it in" a bit longer.

These falls are much hyped in the area but though quite interesting are not terribly dramatic, so don't expect Niagara. Pleasant walk suitable for less mobile visitors.

Pretty interesting and dramatic falls for something that's very easily accessible. Definitely recommend stopping here for a few minutes if you're going by. It's worth a trip there even if you're not.
