A must see in the winter.

Right now the walk is slippery. But to see the falls partially iced up is incredible. Parking can be a challenge in the winter.

pretty average but an easy walk for those who might struggle with the more challenging ones. Stopped here on the way back from another walk to go and see the falls. The view was very limited and so was the access. Unlike many of the other natural wonders this one was barricaded- great for if you are bringing young children... More

Amazing and unique water falls with two viewing spots. About a 1.5km hike beside a steep hill to the river below to the falls. If you really really don't like heights it may not be for you. There's one platform at the falls but otherwise its manoeuvring on the big rocks to get to the spots to view the falls.... More

Relatively flat walk to the falls but you need to watch your step in particular when you reach the falls as the rocks can be a little slippy. The falls was difficult to photograph but still interesting to see as the water goes into a pot hole which then come up the other side of a rock divide to continue... More

I loved the trail from the parking lot to the falls lookout. Goes right along the river through the forest.

Based on the many positive reviews, we included Nairn Falls as part of our Whistler trip. The approximate 1.5km trek from parking lot to falls viewing area is easy to moderate and does provide some very nice photos ops. I would agree with other reviews that you need to watch your step, in particular as you close in on the... More

I think it was less than a half an hour, easy walk to the falls. Gorgeous! Well worth your time. You walk along a river as well. At the very end, if the gate is open, be sure to check out the other end of the falls. Can be slippery, so watch your footing.

Short trek from the car park to the Falls but beware of the path as it is not fenced and there's a steep drop to the river. Also boa constrictors (yes that's right) live in the leaf litter of the forest - but only eat rodents not humans. Once you get to the Falls the rocks can be very slippery... More

This is a very busy campground so unless you don't mind road noise then it is probably better to book a site away from the road as it is very noisy at night. The toilets are pit ones and very busy, however they are clean. It appears everyone has a fire so it gets very smokey at night. Sites are... More

You take a lovely walk of about 1-1.5km to the falls through the forest . Spectacular falls can be seen from the fenced in viewpoints above them.
