One of the most impressive canyons and waterfalls we have seen. Easily accessible, good parking and a safe walk to it.
Great photo opportunities and well worth a visit.

We stayed at Sunwapta Rocky Mountain Lodge so decided to do an early morning hike to the Falls and also do the Lower Falls hike. What a perfect morning. Such beautiful scenery and peace. We did not encounter anyone on the trails since it was quite early so we had this piece of paradise all to ourselves. The scenery is stunning. The lower falls hike was the most beautiful part of our morning and something everyone should see. I thank the young woman at the registration office at the lodge who suggested this hike - as her suggestion made our visit!

This is a must see when driving the Banff/Japer highway. The falls are through a nearrow gorge and one can view both upper and lower falls from a short hiing trail bridge,

Doesn't quite have the raw power of Athabasca Falls but not a bad effort, plenty of good vantage points to admire the Falls, love it!

Stopped here on way from jasper to Columbia Icefields. There are some nice trails in the area but we didn’t have time to go down them. We took some short walks around to different viewpoints to admire the falls. Our son enjoyed tossing rocks into the river. Beautiful place to visit.
