Tangle Creek Falls, Jasper National Park

Waterfall · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Take a quick stop on the Ice Fields Parkway at Tangle Creek Falls to stretch your legs and snap a few photos of this delicate, multi-tiered cascade coming down a big cliff face. You can enjoy the beauty of the waterfall from the road or make the extra effort and climb one of the several short, unmarked paths to the top of the falls. Keep an eye out for bighorn sheep grazing on a ledge just above the road. The falls are easily accessible, but also easy to miss, so drive slowly to spot a small turnout north of the Glacier Skywalk that leads to the falls. Amenities include a parking lot on the other side of the road and washrooms. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Tangle Creek Falls by using our Jasper National Park driving holiday planner.

  • One of many amazing stops on the side of the road as you drive the Icefields Parkway.
  • Neat stop directly on the side of the road. Be careful of tourists crossing the highway. Smaller than some of the more popular falls in the park.
  • ❣ this is a great place on the Banff Jasper Highway which I highly recommend to drive in the summer and you stay off after November. The Falls freeze in the winter and it is tricky because of traffic but still a great View. Try the Athabasca Falls if you do take Banff Jasper Highway.
  • Ice climbing was an amazing experience. I highly recommend Rockaboo for a guide.
  • Tangle Creek is amazing at any time of year. I just wish it had been possible to safely get to the lower falls.
