Dropping from 335 metres (1,105 ft) above it's base, Shannon Falls is an impressive sight rising above Howe Sound. As the 3rd tallest falls in BC, its incredibly easy access make Shannon Falls by far the most popular picnicking spot and visitor attraction in the Sea to Sky Corridor - not to be missed.
A well-maintained trail and boardwalk network allow you to explore the base area of the falls, surrounded by towering trees, old growth stumps, and a permanent mist from the roaring falls. For the best experience, visit in the spring or fall, when visitor numbers are lower and the high water levels from snow-melt and rain make for a raging, thunderous falls.
From the Falls, a popular and steep 7 - 10km round-trip hike leads up and over to the top of the Stawamus Chief, yielding breathtaking views of Squamish, Howe Sound, and surrounding peaks.
