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.

  • Alexander Falls is unexpectedly tall although the water flow was quite subdued in October. It must be spectacular when the snows are melting. Only a short drive outside Whistler with a large car park ...  more »

  • Very beautiful. Right beside the parking lot. Therefore, everyone can access it. However, the road that leads to the parking lot (100m at most) is very rough. Someone with a smaller car/worn out tires should be careful.
  • Easily viewable from the car park. No hiking required. Located in the beautiful Callaghan valley.
  • One of the most amazing waterfalls that you can get to by way of a short hike. Simply stunning and worth seeing.
  • Not as popular as other falls in the area, but very nice. Quick and easy access to viewing area from the road. Lots of bears in the area.
  • Such a beautiful view! And the waterfalls ain't bad either 😉
