Great for families..easy to just play in the river. We adored this spot, it was our favorite water fall from our trip. We can't wait to come back with our kids.

rainy day, didn't stop us! Falls are beautiful...paths are wide and well maintained. 2 great viewing spots only 5 to 10 mins from parking lot. Walk over to the Sea to Sky Gondola...it is worth it!!!

The park is beautiful and the falls are a short walk from the parking lot. There are plenty of nice spots where you can stand and reflect on your surroundings or take pictures.

Short walk after you park the car to the falls, absolutely breathtaking....Worth seeing. Don't miss it, small gift shop on the trail.

This is an easy hike and one of the best falls in this area! Most of the trail is paved. It was rainy lightly the day we visited, but don't let that deter you.

Stopped in to visit Shannon Falls after our Sea-to-Sky Gondola ride. Shannon Falls is one of my very favourite spots to visit. One can truly feel the spiritual beauty of this place. Enjoy the groomed trails and boardwalks through the forest, as you ascend the falls. Plan to spend 90 minutes or more here. Parking is FREE, and FREE admission... More

What a fantastic place! Gorgeous falls and easy trails. Nice place to picnic and small shop with hot/ cold drinks, snacks and ice cream. Very helpful attendant. Limited parking so be prepared to wait - there's a steady flow of cars leaving which helps to free up spaces. I can't believe they don't charge an entry/ parking fee!! Absolute must... More

I would recommend this trip on a sunny day. The trails can get a little slick when it's raining and the views are not as good on cloudy days. It isn't suitable for people in wheelchairs. If you can make it to the top of the trail to see the falls up close you won't regret the walk up the... More
