All reviews powerful waterfall the river off the highway easy access different angles worth a stop short walk quick stop great stop parking lot car park rushing water mother nature jasper national park lake louise canadian rockies niagara
The falls are just a short way from Jasper and easy to get to. There is good parking available but, as with everything in this area, it could get very busy in the main season. Do go early to try and avoid the crowds.
Pleasant little falls and well presented along the Icefields parkway. Plenty of parking spaces but could be busy in summer.
Pleasant walks along the river and bridges and viewpoints as well.
Only a short stop required and different from summer to winter with the ice.
I’ve been here quite a few times on the way out of jasper, it’s easy and along side the high way which makes it easy for a quick stop, the falls are beautiful and the scenery is amazing, I only suggest being cautious in the...More
Don't get me wrong - this is a lovely set of falls, spectrum colours in the spray and crashing water but you can see something similar in a number of places around the Park. We went in Sept but plenty of water coming over. You...More

We were there at the beginning of this month and some of the hiking trails were still inaccessible and parts of the falls frozen, but as others say it is beautiful and some of the trails are accessible but icy

There are a lot of attractions you can see and do in this area, depending on the age of maybe kids that are traveling with you.If you start in Canmore Just visit the tourist info.They are very competent and like to help.They will supply you with the necessary maps and explain what is possible during these days.There are some easy hikes around Canmore and walking in town maybe nice ,too.For the Athabascar Glacier you should know that you only get it together with the skywalk and both together will take about 2,5 hrs...without waiting for your group to start.I don‘t know whether you can already book tickets and parting time online in advance.So, have a look.The Athabascar Falls are not at the same place but further on to Jasper.Visiting them is free, but to enter the Icefield Parkway you need a Parkpass anyway.Might be less expensive to buy one for the whole year(around 130 CAD as far as I remember from May) than to buy one for each day,depending on what you want to do in this time.You could try to see Peyto Lake or Lake Louise(very crowded if you are there after 11am) , stop at Lake Herbert. Johnston Canyon is interesting,too, if your kids are older than maybe four and able to walk a distance of about 5 km.
Maligne Lake is Nice ,too, but the boat trip to Spirit Island can only be recommended on days with good weather.Ot is interesting for photographers.
There might be some bighorn sheep , elks or black bears around, even on or near the street.But with the bears you should avoid to get out of the car to get photos.As at this time of the year the female have cubs, they are more aggressive. And of course...no feeding of any of the wild animals.The rangers told us that they normally have to kill a bear that was fed and attracted by people because otherwise they might be a danger to the people in winter, getting too near to their houses.
