Witness a raging torrent of white water at Bow Falls. Listen to the hypnotic roar as the water tumbles down the dramatic cascade. Though not particularly high, the falls are wide, and the power on display is undeniable. If you can handle some stairs, the trail continues beyond the falls and is worth exploring for a peaceful stroll where you might spot some wildlife. Nicely accessible from a nearby carpark, the falls offer something for everyone to enjoy.

Bow Falls Reviews
LOOKS SO COOL
Love going to bow falls. It’s a definite visit whenever we go to the mountains. A beautiful scenic spot for pictures. The water is just beautiful changing colours of blue green turquoise! Kids can enjoy the water - throwing rocks and cloud watching or just to enjoy the sounds of nature. Can get a little too busy sometimes but the crowd moves quick. Take a jacket!
