Powerful falls, so hold onto your kids. Beautiful viewpoints, though. Take the time to stop and walk around this area to see the falls.

The walk along the river lets you see the full power of the river and there are helpful signs explaining the geology of the river and how it has shaped the landscape. The sight is busier than Sunwapta Falls just along the road and the photo opportunities are less

Worth a car drive to see torrenting waterfalls and river canyon. Need Park pass to enter area but lots of stunning scenery wherever you look. Avoid when buses turn up!!!

Very busy site on the way to the Columbia Ice Fields. Does require some walking to get to, but well worth the walk. It is hard to grasp the scope of the falls and the speed of the water rushing through. Very pictureseque!

This was beyond beautiful. Everyone needs to stop there. You won't ever forget nature at its best. We had read about it, but words just tell it all. Hope everyone gets to see these Falls.

Great viewing sites on carefully constructed concrete bridges span these picturesque falls with plenty of space for all to see - along with helpful descriptive plaques

We have past the route from Columbia Ice Fields to Jasper twice before and had not stopped to visit Athabasca Falls. This time was different, so happy we did. Equal parts natural wonder and education makes this a worthwhile 30-60 minute stop.
