Shannon Falls is the third tallest falls in the BC. Located on the sea to sky corridor adjacent to the Stawamus Chief, Shannon Falls is definitely a site not to be missed. There is a short walking trail leading to the lower lookout of Shannon Falls. This paved path crosses over a wooden bridge and a creek before reaching the viewpoint at the base of the falls. From the lower viewing platform visitors enjoy fantastic views of the towering waterfall disappearing into a cloud of mist. Interesting Shannon Falls Park Facts
