Stopped and walked up to the falls and then had a lovely picnic in the park before continuing on to Whistler, BC

“Hike the chief for the amazing views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We drove from downtown Vancouver to Shannon falls, hiked straight up to the third peak, hiked down and drove home in 6 hours. A great day trip. Amazing views, very relaxing, difficulty definitely intermediate. Make sure to bring a quality camera for the photos!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

After Sea-to-sky hwy got a major update this park got s facelift too. The walk way there is simple, anybody should be able to handle it. You will take lots of nice pictures to bring home from your trip to BC.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

When entering the park the amount of parking space is limited on a busy day but worth the effort due to impressive falls and a nice viewing area

“Beautiful waterfall in a spacious provincial park!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

The Lower Mainland is blessed with many beautiful provincial parks, and Shannon Falls Provincial Park is one of them.

Located along the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Shannon Falls Provincial Park is easily accessible with your vehicle. It is about a 1 to 1.5 hour drive from Vancouver - you can make this an additional attraction to and from Whistler.

My wife and I visited Shannon Falls in July of 2012. The weather was great and the scene was captivating. Shannon Falls is not nearly as spectacular as Bridal Falls (which I highly recommend), but it is a lot easier to get to after you park than Bridal Falls.

The provincial park also offers multiple trails for those who enjoy hiking. Because we were on a very limited time schedule, we did not take advantage of that.

Near the entrance of the trails are large empty areas that can be used for picnics. We even saw a few camps set up.

Overall, Shannon Falls Provincial Park offers choices for a get-away, whether you only have a few hours on hand, or a full weekend to spend!
