Very short hike to the amazing falls. Plenty of parking, restrooms available and paved trails to the lower falls. A must see while traveling the Sea to Sky Highway!

It can get very crowded there when the tour buses come through, but there are several nice walks from where you can see the falls. Make sure you take your camera!

A short walk in and you start to hear the roar of the falls! Beautiful spot very close to the city and Squamish. Lots of parking, not far to the falls, very enjoyable.

This is a stunning waterfall and it is majestic! However, not the best for photographs. I really liked all of the hiking trails around the falls. The Chief peak 1 and 2 were awesome! I recommend doing at least one of them!

Yes, you should be able to take a good photo of nearly the entire falls from one of the look off points.
