Round out your visit to Whistler by seeing Alexander Falls, one of the city's most picturesque cascades.

Don your snowshoes or hiking boots for the 30-minute trail leading to the picturesque lookout point. If you have time constraints or are less inclined to walk, drive to the parking lot conveniently close to the top of the waterfall.

  • The Alexander falls were a quick 20 minute drive from Whistler village. The lookout is attached to the parking lot, so no hiking involved here. The road up to the falls, on the way to Whistler Olympic...  more »
  • This was a short trip from the village and on a road common for bear sightings. We went in the late afternoon and did see a cub along the way. The falls are good for some picture taking. 
  • Hard to find. There is a small signe from the road. Once you find it, go up to the parking lot. The fall is a short walk away.
