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.
Dropping from 335 metres (1,105 ft) above it’s base, Shannon Falls is an impressive sight rising above Howe Sound.
The tumbling waters of Shannon Falls originate from Mount Habrich and Mount Sky Pilot.
