If you are going to Whistler from Vancouver, definitely made a stop here. Parked your car, follow the sign and quickly you will see a tall water fall.

A stunning place with a short walk along a path that gives you a great view at the bottom of the falls. Another path can take you higher but we only had a short stop so didn't walk along out.

The view of the waterfall from the road just isn't enough. A short walk from the car park and you're at a viewing platform right in front of the base of the waterfall. Such a epic sight and super peaceful in the surrounding forest.

The person at the Car rental place told me about Shannon Falls. So glad he did. The distance from town was I think around 50 Miles (80 Kilometers) away. Beautiful drive. Reminds me of Home (Alaska). The trail was easy and short. Good for families...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.
