“Bow Falls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Bow Falls is actually a series of cascades. It's easy to get to by car and is located in Jasper. It is named for the river that flows down the cascades...Bow River. It can be seen from either side of the river. The side with Buffalo Road has basically a view from up high. The other side allows you to get to almost the same level as the river, with a walk-way to go up-river.

“Take the trail up the left bank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I had visited the falls before but not taken the trail that runs beside it. The falls are very very long so the only way to really appreciate their majesty is to brave the up and down stairs. Not for the elderly.

“Pretty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I'm rating this as average only because I've been Iguazu in Brazil/Argentina and can't compare them to these baby ones...however the scenery is beautiful with the blue clear water coming from the glaciers...
