    Easy little walk to the falls and well worth it. DON'T use the first toilets you come to from the parking lot. Walk just a little further to 'real' bathrooms that don't have the horrendous odor that t...  more »

    The nice thing about Shannon Falls is you can see the Falls shortly after you arrive there - You don't need to climb up the stairs to get a view. However, if you can, I would recommend climbing up clo...  more »

    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.
