Easy access .. small falls if you want to take a break from driving.

Most people only see the upper falls which are a very short walk from the parking area. The lower falls are also very beautiful and worth a visit. The trail to the lower Sunwapta Falls is not particularly scenic until you approach the end as it does not provide views of the river. It can be a bit steep in certain places as well.

Stopped by and did a quick walk due to it raining and being chilly. Very nice falls!

Arrived late afternoon, not many people were around, and most of those who were didn't bother going down to the lower falls section. Would probably be very busy during the day. Nice and easy walk, good for a stop off while driving the highway.

Relatively busy and has lots of fencing.

There was quite a crowd at the parking lot and upper falls, but only a small number of people walk the easy trail to the lower falls. Definitely worth the extra time to go down there and check it out. Don't stop at the bench when you get there - keep walking a bit more to see even more!

We just did this hike on June 7, 2018, it was a travel day for us from Jasper to Banff. We made a lunch and ate it on the memorial bench at the lower falls. We were left alone for over an hour as we ate and midterms to the falls. If you stop here, I advise you to go to the less busy lower falls.

This is a great short hike. The views of the waterfalls are very pretty. It is well worth the time to hike down to the lower falls, as they descend the canyon in several large cascades, so don't stop at the first one!

Beautiful waterfalls - the hike to the lower falls is well worth the additional 4km trip.

Short, easy. Beautiful sight to see - probably one of my favorites in Jasper overall.
