Shannon Falls

Located not far from Squamish about 64 km north of Vancouver along the Sea to Sky Highway, at just over 1,110 feet Shannon Falls is the third highest waterfall in British Columbia.


To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all facilities at Shannon Falls have been closed by BC Parks. This includes the parking lot, washrooms, the concession stand and all trails. For more information click Shannon Falls Closure.

Shannon Falls

Shannon Falls has a seasonal concession stand, an information centre and flush toilets, making it an ideal spot for a stretch or a picnic on your drive up to Whistler, Alice Lake, Stawamus Chief or anywhere else along the Sea-to-Sky Highway.

The park is 87 hectares in size and has no overnight camping facilities, but its picnic area is reservable by groups. There is a $50 fee for special events, dogs are permitted on leash, bicycles are allowed on the trails, bbqs are permitted in the picnic area, and the waterfall is fairly accessible – just a short 350 metre walk along a packed dust-based trail.

TIP: Shannon Falls is especially impressive in the spring and after a heavy rainfall.
