  • Shannon Falls Park is an hour's drive from Vancouver on the Sea to Sky highway rated high on the world list of scenic highways as it snakes through mountains and continues to Whistler and Blackcomb ye...  more »
  • Stopped here quickly on our way back from the West Coast Railway museum. It was amazing. We hiked to the viewing points to take photos of the falls. Breathtaking landscape and love the forest! 
  • Always a great spot to get out and stretch your legs. A short walk to the falls and always stunning.

  • Great little stop. There's a nice little trail down the river and the falls are great
  • great stop while on the sea to sky hwy.. not impressive but worth the stop and easy access to the lookout. about 5 - 10 mins walk from the parking lot
  • Beautiful waterfalls on Sea to Sky Highway. Keep an eye on a sign on your right hand side when driving to Whistler. You also can park your car here and walk to take the Sea to Sky Gondola a couple of meters further. It’s a “must” stop when you are visiting our beautiful region.
  • Lots of great trad climbing on the rock. Beauty. Can get super busy on a nice day, hard to find parking on those days. Come early or late.
  • Beautiful falls with a quick walk to get to. Limited parking in the main area but plenty of parking in the overflow area across the highway with stop lights and cross walks for safe crossing (only a 5 minute walk). Well worth a visit to and a great place to have a picnic as there are plenty of outdoor tables.
