I could have sat for hours watching this majestic waterfall. The falls seem to just blast out of the side of the mountain and crash below on the rocks. The setting is equally impressive. Trees and downed logs are covered in moss, and ferns blanket...More

We thought there might be a bit of hiking around the waterfall, but it's just the waterfall. Not sure why you would go there just for this, but we had to park across the road on the overspill parking.

A short beautiful walk- free parking - not necessarily a destination but excellent stop along the way

I was really looking forward to getting to the falls, but driving through the packed parking lot, I couldn't find a spot. Although I did notice an overflow lot across the main road, I decided to drive on due to the hoards of people. Multiple...More

Shannon Falls is definitely worth a stop enroute to Whistler or to the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish. It’s about a 10 minute hike to the falls through a natural wooded trail. Once you arrive at the Falls, feel the cool mist hit your...More

Parked across the highway and walked into the park on our way to the Sea to Sky Gondola. Stopped at the falls for photos. Bear in mind that there are lots of people at the falls.

A quick stop off the sea to sky Highway is well worth your time. In fact if you had more time there are lots of trails you can also take. In August the water is flowing moderately but still beautiful.

This place offers a quiet, peaceful break on an easy walk pathway. There are several vantage points of the Falls along the walk but it will depend on the time of year as to how much water is falling. Not so much in August but...More

Hi Rima I was at Shannon Falls back in June and from memory, it looked that you would be able to have a BBQ in the car park but there is isn't anywhere up by the falls - you would probably get a lot of spray on you... More

No signs say you can’t, but I wouldn’t let my kids play in that area. Shallow, cold and rocky.
