Stopped here quickly on our way back from the West Coast Railway museum. It was amazing. We hiked to the viewing points to take photos of the falls. Breathtaking landscape and love the forest!

Very beautiful and relaxing place to visit. Stairs made of natural timber and gravel make it easy for almost anyone to get to higher vantage points. The falls are great, but it's the overall natural beauty of the place that makes a visit really worthwhile. Many fallen trees and stumps of cut trees have been left in place, making you... More

On a recent day trip from Vancouver to Whistler, we stopped at Shannon Falls. Located on the Sea-to-Sky Highway, the falls are easily accessible off the highway. A short and easy walk from the parking lot, the falls cascade down a shear drop-off. You can picnic at the falls, and walk some trails. Well worth the stop!!

The Sea to Sky Highway has many road side stops to choose from on the drive from Vancouver to Whistler. If you are wanting to make the trip in a timely manner but still experience the beauty of a waterfall, make Shannon Falls your one stop. You won't be disappointed!

This is the most powerful waterfall I have ever seen. It is very accessible right on the highway and a short stroll from the car park. There is some water spray so be prepared.

No parking stress here late in the afternoon. A gentle walk through beautiful bushland on well maintained paths. The falls are special. Well worth the short, easy,walk to view them. Recommended

So many things to see in the area but you pass this on the Highway 99 and just have to stop. Great views
