Great place to stretch your legs and/or have a picnic on the way to or from Squamish or Whistler. Big picnic area with lots of tables, easy walking trail to a lookout to the falls, some of it along the river. Lots of people were in the river as well taking pictures. There is some stairs to get to a... More

A short (10-15 minute hike to a stunning fall. Lots of great photo opportunities, and no charge to enter the area by the waterfall.

This gem of a Provincial Park is a must see and do stop if you are driving along the Sea to Sky Highway. Take the short walk up to the base of the falls and enjoy the view. You'll walk through some beautiful trees and feel like you are a million miles (kilometers) from the highway. There are nice restroom... More

Tucked away just off the highway is an awe-inspiring attraction, akin to visiting a giant, you come upon them all of a sudden although you can hear the roar of the water from quite a way off. The access is good and the attraction is free. If you are able to experience this then it is a must!

It is just a short walk from the parking lot. We were there on a holiday Monday and it was crazy busy. There was no place to park, so we left and came back in the early evening. It was still busy, but we were able to park.

This is a pretty cool waterfall, but only worth 30 - 45 mins. Meander up the well trodden road, and walk the extra 5 minutes if you want to avoid the crowds, to check out this waterfall. Then evac to something more substantial like The Chief.

Very nice park to stop and have a picnic after riding the Sea to Sky Gondola. Lots of picnic tables and room for children to run around. Good trails to view Shannon Falls. Good, clean washrooms.

We circled around a few times and could not find a spot. We stopped in the middle of the parking lot, put the hazards on, and took pictures from the parking lot. It was cool to see but nothing exciting if you have seen Niagara falls. To me the mountains are a much better attraction.

The falls are right of 99. A short walk to the falls (mostly uphill). I recommend take the path to the overlook and then walk down to the lower part. If you have time and courage, walk out onto the rocks. Then take gravel trail back.
