  • 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.
