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.

  • so happy we decided to catch a break here. the falls were incredible -made me think they would be earth shaking in the spring-nice short trail to the viewing platform. You can choose to take the stepp...  read more »
  • This has always been a great spot to stop for a bathroom break and to stretch your legs enroute to Whistler. The falls are just a short walk away and spectacular to behold up close. It's worth the cli...  read more »
  • Plenty of parking nearby and a little shop en route. We just walked to the falls and back but I believe there are other routes up and around. Noticeably cooler than Vancouver as it is on the way to Wh...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Wow, we got lucky with this one. What a beautiful location. We just happened to pull over here to get out of the car for a break and take a walk. The river and falls are gorgeous!
  • Well worth stopping here - on the road between Vancouver and Whistler. May be difficult to find a park but be patient - the falls are magnificent.
