This waterfall is worth the short hike up to the view point. Medium sized parking just off Highway 99, 2km before the town of Squamish. During Fall, Winter and Spring you can view very dramatic vistas of British Columbia's 3rd highest falls. Easily accessible, and only a 15 minute walk from the parking lot to view point. Only negative is... More

This is what British Columbia is all about... The falls are just magical and ever so grand with an absolutely picture perfect scenery. This is a must visit place, should you be travelling to Vancouver or Whistler. This is where the Sea meets the Sky... Absolutely phenomenal!

Was a great stopping point during our trip up to Whistler, the hike itself was quite nice and very easy for any skill level. You could see the waterfall by only walking a few hundred meters, and continue up for more of a hike with some different views. You can also walk up the road to the Sea to Sky... More

This is the 3rd highest waterfall in British Columbia. Even in snow in winter, the falls is still running and does not completely freeze. We stopped here for a driving break and to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Highly recommended short hike through beautiful cedar and fir trees.

These falls are a short walk from the parking lot and all on asfalt paths. The falls are 335m high and very impressive. Nice little souvenir shop in a small wooden building.

Stopped here on the way to Squamish, it's a beautiful waterfall and is easily accessible. For people who don't want to hike up the hill, you can walk up to a viewing area near the bottom of the waterfall. It's right beside the highway and worth stopping just to take a look.

A great short walk through a forested trail to the great waterfall. Exceptional when the water is running fast & hard. Be sure to take your camera.

Pop in and look at if frozen. Bring grippy boots or crampons as it's a Ivey walkway but holy is it breathtaking once you get up to falls. Easy and awesome. Take five mins out of your busy schedule and treat yourself

I live in Squamish and stop by Shannon Falls often for a short visit and dog walk. We are having a very cold snap here now. Temperatures lower than usual even for our short winter season. I stopped by the falls yesterday to see what the temperatures are doing to them. Wow! It's so beautiful! A winter wonderland! And I... More

We walked from the gondola car park to the fall. Unfortunately no one warned you that the path is very icy and slippery coming from that side. The approach from the car park at the fall is slightly less icy. If you are thinking of walking to the fall from the gondola please take care. You really need to have... More
