The view from the first observation area is as good as it gets unless you go up endless stairs. The stairs are well constructed but climb sharply in many switch backs. Not sure the final shot was worth the knee grease unless it is for...More

We combined this site with several others in the days. Short walk to the falls. Crowds and parking can be tough but put it on your list.

We decided to stop at Shannon Falls on the way up to Whistler. A great choice. Good parking area, well signed and several picnic tables. A nice easy hike to the base of the falls which are quite dramatic. You can continue on to the...More

Family holiday visit to Vancouver, which saw us explore the coast to the West for a day, finding Shannon Falls on our travels. Well worth the stop for a slight uphill mini-hike to stretch the legs and see the falls fairly close up, without having...More

The Shannon Waterfalls are located right down the road from the Sea to Sky Gondola. Both are definitely worth seeing. The walk to the falls is easy and the forest is delightful. It probably was about a ten minute walk from the parking lot. Definitely...More

Beautiful falls and very easy to get to. There are two viewing areas. I recommend the pedestrian walk to the gondola from here as well. It was a beautiful forested walk that I really enjoyed and parking was easier from here.

This waterfall was amazing to see. The day that we went saw a huge Indian Festival being held there and there was still room for other tourists to see the site. There are quite a few walking trails there and also lots of vantage points...More

There is a small loop trail which lets you see the waterfalls and then a small walk beside a creek. The walk to the falls is about 2 min from the parking area and a very easy trail. There are picnic tables near the parking...More

It is a short walk up that is accessible by all. Nice falls especially around sunset. Even the walk to the fall is gorgeous with tons of ferns and large trees. Look for signs left behind from the lumbering days such as notches in trees...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.
