The falls, in the northern half of Yoho park, drop 833 ft -- making it one of the highest waterfalls in Canada. The falls are spectacular in early summer, when melting snow and ice provide ample runoff.

After awhile on this trip you are going to be "ho-hum" when you come across yet another STUNNING thing, like a huge waterfall where you can easily walk up into the roaring mist. Stop, think, and appreciate. Family all agreed they loved this stop. (a rarity)

Yes it is a waterfall but different from the others. Another quick visit and we took the opportunity to wander toward the base of the falls. Many photo opportunities along the short, easy walk.

Easy to get to with lots of parking. Access road can't accommodate longer rvs...they get hung up on the switchbacks. Easy walk to the base of the falls from the parking lots.

The falls are located next to a track near a car park. They are very accessible with a car, but can also be seen when hiking in en route to the Canadian Alpine Club huts in the area: the way I encountered them. They are well worth a detour, even with a loaded pack on your back! The water in... More

Sights and sounds of this magnificent waterfall, second highest in the country! Recommend to park roadside before you get to parking lot and take a short hike into the falls past the Parks Canada adirondack chairs.

We went to these nice falls our our way to Banff. The 250m high falls are really impressive - I recommend to stop by.

I loved these falls and the windy drive to get there. A trip here is definitely worth it is you are in the mountain parks. The falls crash down and mist you as you get closer...the water passing along your walk in a gorgeous blue stream that you can enjoy on the walk to the falls base. There are areas... More

Spectacular falls not to far off of Highway 1 close to Field. The drive up to the falls was quite a pleasant one with a few stop offs along the way. Plenty of parking when you get to the falls which you see in the distance as you approach the parking area. These are the 3rd highest falls in Canada... More
