We took a walk from the car park of the sea to sky gondola through some lovely forest with squirrels. Some good viewpoints and trails to walk around. Lovely picturesque waterfall in peaceful surroundings.

Visited this as a stop on the way to whistler and it was a great stop. Had a good picnic while listening to the water.

Easy to get to, free parking. Right off the main highway and an easy hike to see it. Not even a hike, just a 5 minute walk if that to the first observatory/picture spot.

Beautiful falls, there are a couple of levels to view from. The first main view point is paved and easily accessible. Access to the 2nd requires a walk up several sets of steps. Either way the falls are beautiful and a must see.

Too many steps for someone with an arthritic ankle. Scenery absolutely stunning. Well worth a visit.

We often stop at Shannon Falls on our way to or from Whistler, as long as we are not towing our fifth wheel. There is no parking for RVs and sometimes parking even for regular automobiles is at a premium. The walk to the Falls...More

Yes, you should be able to take a good photo of nearly the entire falls from one of the look off points.
