From my point of view, this is the best waterfall in Jasper. An easy hike with great spots to take pictures.

My favorite waterfall in Jasper! So gorgeous. Easy for everyone to see the top of the falls! Not a “hike” more like a scenic walk!

Easy hike for families with great views and scenery. Make sure you go down the canyon to the water and get a family photo! Well worth the stop. Not a lot of people in May.

cool to see, more of a tourist attraction than a hike, but the north side of the road is cool to walk threw the canyon walls more

Falls are stunning - but it's heavily populated and so lots of waiting for groups to pass.

The falls are gorgeous and the trails are paved/easy, however this isn't really my cup of tea - too much concrete and crowds. Very touristy

Really pretty area. The falls are a great sight and the trail is nice. Lots of write ups on the falls and wildlife, but a lot of heavy traffic and tourists. Towards the river, the trail goes between rock. Lots of fun and if not following the whole trail, it's a nice little stop off the highway as well.
