  • Easiest falls to get to ever. The falls are just off the road and you park right next to the observation deck. As an addition you are likely to see black bears along the side of the road going back to route 99.
  • A bit off the road on the way to Whistler, Alexander Fall is definitely worth a visit, even if you have to trek through a few feet of snow to visit. It's absolutely beautiful but don't expect the trail to be plowed or the outhouses to be visible. It was absolutely stunning in the winter and wasn't frozen despite the freezing temperatures. I would definitely return in warmer weather!
  • A beautiful waterfall with easy access. There's a parking lot with two outhouses and a viewing platform.
  • Amazing water fall. I love the place.
  • worth a visit, just a bit hard to find, make sure you take the first left of the 2 sand roads.
