“a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Especially is you are not a hiker and do not get to see falls like this often. Super easy access, magnificent falls. It is busy though, try to go early to avoid the crowd ....

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We have been here several times, love the falls and the view! Well worth the drive! Walking on the paths is flat unless you take the path to the lake.

“Spectacular falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The falls were beautiful. Very short hike from the parking area which makes for easy access. No charge. Many photo ops. Do no miss these falls if driving highway 93 between Banff and Jasper.

“Simply beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

First time visit and we were dazzled by the beauty of the falls and enjoyed watching some rafters head down the lake. Our youngest is three, so we had to by extra mindful of him, but the walk was great and the scenery incredible. We'll most definitely return!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This has got to be on your list if you are 'doing the Rockies'. Make sure you walk to the end to see the second part of the falls.
