The GPS had us going in circles as it took us down the road just past the turn off for this waterfall. Once we found the right spot, we parked and just a few steps away there it was...Alexander Falls.

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 Only a stroll across the carpark to the best viewing point.

This is another beautiful waterfall before you get to Whistler. It is easy to get to and you can basically drive right up to the viewing platform. Don't miss these beautiful falls.

Loved the drive to get here. The Falls were beautiful and not crowded with plenty of parking. Wish there was a trail to the base.

There is no access to the falls, plus it is also in bear country and you have to keep at least 100 metres from the bears. Plus there is no way down to the river as it too high. Hope this answers your question
