“Beautiful & tons of fun”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We stopped at Shannon Falls on our way from Vancouver to Whistler and spent about 3 hours. We brought along a picnic and opted to eat close to the water instead of the picnic tables. We climbed out into the water, took lots of pictures and climbed about half way up the fall. When you get to the top viewing platform there's a path above the bench. If you watch closely for the path you can get about half way up then look for the blue rope and go even farther. When we climbed up that far it was magical, the sun shining brightly, the mist from the fall, and the roar of the water. It was a great experience!

There is great parking, it's well marked from the highway, and there are well kept restrooms and a small gift shop that has drinks and ice cream. A large part of the path is asphalt so you can use stroller/wheelchairs.

This is a great place to spend some time. It is a short walk up to the viewing area of the falls. This walk was managed easily enough by the three year old. The falls themselves are beautiful! What we enjoyed even more was the area surrounding the falls. There is the "creek/river" that comes from the falls that is accessible. My children had fun playing around in the water. There is also ample green space to have a picnic, or just run around.

“Picture Perfect!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Must stop and see this gorgeous waterfall - just a short walk and you are standing at the base of a 1000 foot waterfall. The sun would be better in the afternoon for photography - but it is always beautiful. Walk is along a stream with huge bolders and towering trees. Picnic tables and plenty of parking.

Things have changed over the years. There is much more parking now and seems to be catering to tourists as apposed to locals. Right now with all our rainfall the falls themselves are fantastic. This is really a good time to see them.
