  • Only after three hundred meters down you are against this small but powerful waterfall and again a vantage point that you can see in 10 minutes we took more than half an hour... It turns out that we were as stupid watching this great race against the current offered to salmon, were enormous and only seen them fly to the other side of the waterfall. We missed batons as if we heard "going, going, your can..." hehehe. We almost obscured in the place but it was well worth it.

  • This is more of an extension of Mount Robson Provincial Park than a park in its own right. There is an easy walk to the waterfalls, which are very picturesque, and definitely worth the effort.  more »
  • Very nice nice hike. Good with other small or medium-sized tours in the area can be combined.

  • Love love love it here! Its a quick walk down but steep on the way back up. Only 2 minute walk but phew! Its steep so some elderly people may not want to go down if they have any serious health problems.
  • Heading west, about 15 kilometers after Mount Robson, there is a roadside stop on the left side. The small road sign mentions Rearguard falls. This is a great way to stretch your legs, and see the falls close up. The roar of the falls, and the spray of the water, is cooling and refreshing. Wooden platforms and fenced retaining area keep the kids safely on the right side of the falls.
  • In the shadow of Banff and Jasper but nevertheless worth a stop if you like salmon jumping up the waterfall.
  • Beautiful spot...great for pics
  • a nice litle (not high, but wide) waterfall, with fast flowing water.
