About this activity

Are you ready for some beautiful outdoor adventure, taking you to the third highest waterfall in British Columbia? Great, because we're off to Shannon Falls Provincial Park!

This popular BC Park is composed of a series of impressive cliffs that rise 335m above Highways 99, and the tumbling waters of Shannon Falls actually originate from Mount Habrich and Mount Sky Pilot. All these fun facts and more you can learn when you visit!

Shannon Falls Provincial Park is directly adjacent to Highway 99, making it an incredibly popular day-use park. Here, you can spend your day enjoying the numerous picnic spots, or you can grab those walking shoes and take to the many trails, including access to the trail in Stawamus Chief Provincial Park.

Also within Shannon Falls Provincial Park are plenty of climbing and rock climbing opportunities for the more adventurous in the family!  There are some multi-pitch and bolted routes, however, it's worth nothing that there are no designated trails to the climbing routes, so be prepared.

Don't forget to take that camera, and if you want to spend a little more time within the park, check out the camping opportunities there! Camping might come with a fee, but check online or ask at the Basecamp for more information.

So kids, are you ready to enjoy a nature filled day surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes in British Columbia (and some may say the whole of Canada!)

Let's get ready, because adventure is calling!
