Waterfall National Park
Adventure around Shannon Falls Provincial Park, a large protected landscape with plentiful natural attractions to discover. Set across an area of 87 hectares (210 acres), the provincial park offers a wealth of walking routes and picnic spots, popular with day-trippers for its convenient location close to Highway 99. The main attraction in the park remains its eponymous waterfalls, which send water hurtling down a 335 m (1,099 ft) cliff set in dense woodland.

  • A beautiful waterfall, the third highest in Canada. Falls down a steep rock face; easy walk from the parking lot. Almost picture book rushing cascade flows for about .5 kilometers. Good gift shop with...  more »
  • Wow, what a beautiful place. Very picturesque and an ideal place to stop off when travelling north on route 99. There are areas to have a picnic as well as toilet facilties as well as a small shop,.  more »
  • On the trip to Whistler, you should keep here necessarily and look at this impressive waterfall. Parking lot always crowded, but the wait is worth and it also doesn't take long, because the turnover rate is very high. The path to the waterfall just 400 m.

  • Great falls only an hour away from Vancouver. You should come here early to beat the rush, as there is very limited parking available. Also there is a short 5 min trail that takes you to the Sea to Sky Gondola, so you don't have to move you car to that parking lot (also very limited spots, gets really full during holidays etc). Plan ahead and arrive early!
  • Absolutely beautiful! Falls are breath-taking, we hiked up, it's a nice trail. Some benches for picnics. Parking was a bit hard to find on a Sunday afternoon, but free parking, which is rare in Vancouver!
  • IT IS SO INCREDIBLE! Too beautiful for words. The highway to here reminds us why Earth is the best place in the Galaxy. The view is extremely breathtaking!
  • Wonderful waterfall, easy access from the highway and is only about an hour's drive from Vancouver. There are two viewpoints to the waterfalls, and there are also trails leading to Stawamus Chief Provincial Park and the Sea to Sky Gondola.
  • View from the lower viewing area is a short walk from the parking lot, which is free and right off the highway. If you are up for it, there is an upper viewing area which is a short but aggressive elevation climb. Lots of well maintained stairs, the reward was worth it. This is an impressive waterfall.
