Shannon Falls, Squamish,
British Columbia, Canada
July 15, 2015

Just down the road from the gondola is Shannon Falls, a "do not miss" natural roadside attraction. There is free parking at Shannon Falls Provincial Park, and it is an easy 10-minute walk on a woodland trail to the waterfall’s base. Look up — and up. Shannon Falls is about 1,100 feet tall, a prodigious skein of water that pours off cliff faces.

Visitors can also walk from Shannon Falls to the Sea to Sky Gondola parking area; it takes about 10 minutes on a flat trail paralleling the highway.

Shannon Falls is the sixth highest waterfall in British Columbia. Shannon Creek collects its water from Mount Habrich and Sky Pilot Mountain before taking an unrestrained 1,100 foot plummet down a granite cliff face on its way to Howe Sound, one of the continent's most southerly fjords.

Shannon Falls is a classic cascade falls, whose waters pour down precipitously by non-vertical walls in braided tiers and horsetails, as opposed to plunge falls which flow over a ledge and drop vertically without contacting its rock face.
