Upper Shannon Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Shannon Falls, the third-tallest waterfall in British Columbia, is one of the most popular stops along the Sea-to-Sky Highway. But this hike gives you a different vantage.

The 7.5-kilometer (4.7-mile) climb ascends to the upper falls and then up to a rocky bluff viewpoint. From the top, the Howe Sound vantage rivals that on the Stawamus Chief—but without the crowds."
