We saw the falls in the spring when they were spectacular!!!! We also saw them in January when they were frozen over....Still beautiful.... There are very nice benches to sit and take a moment to 'take it all in'

Not as awe-inspiring in Winter to me, since it’s just snow and ice, with a bit of water running. It’s still gorgeous scenery though. Plus you can choose to walk the trail from town or park right there beside it and see it from many angles.

Although frozen these falls are still spectacular, you can park your car really close and view the falls from various viewing points, be careful if you go up the stair walkway in the winter as they may be very icy

On a rainy day, we we did an all-day walk of the townsite. We saw approximately half of the buildings listed in the Walking Through Banff’s History leaflet (self-guided tour). Part of our walk was along the Bow Falls Trail to Bow Falls.

A very nice scenic place to go while in Banff. It is a little way from the main street so I recommend driving here. Parking can be difficult at times. Well worth the visit.
