“Rushing water-beautiful falls!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a really easy walk to the falls with a footboard. The falls are not that large but the rushing of the water especially increased due to the recent flooding, was a beautiful sight! There is nothing like the sound of rushing waterfall which accelerates as you get closer!

It is easy to get to and a beautiful view. You can see the road way above you that looks down over the falls which would also be really pretty. The actual drive all along this road was beautiful!

We came by here in early evening and it was very dramatic and beautiful. Nice evening sunlight shining on the distant mountain vistas.

“Spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We walked along the river from the town and saw the falls at a different perspective than previously. Would suggest doing that rather than just taking the car and looking from there.

“Excellent stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This was a very nice place to sit back and watch the force of the falls. Despite it being very busy when we went, with short walks it was possible to escape the crowds.

The area offers views of the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, as well as some of the river that flows in and out of the falls.

“in full flood-fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Very pleasant walks by the falls, both sides there had been a lot of flooding while we were there so some restrictions. The falls weren't really visable as the water was so high.
