The massive, roaring Athabasca Falls are 30 kilometers (18 miles) south of Jasper on the Athabasca River. Self-guided trails and interpretive exhibits surround the falls. A lookout spot and bridge provide vantage points for photos and contemplation. The falls, surrounded by odd rock formations thousands of years in the making, are also a take-off point for white water rafting. Pack a lunch and grab one of the picnic tables in the warming sun. There are public washrooms and parking areas.
No shortage of water OR people here. Railing-lined walkway takes you to various viewpoints close enough to experience the spray from the plunging river.
Very short walk from the parking lot, so just about anyone can experience this marvel of nature and the Canadian Rockies.
The road access was a little bumpy but that added to the experience. It was very picturesque with the flowing green-white falls and the mountain backdrop. You can follow the path along the river through a now unused portion of the falls and watch it all pour into the lake at the end.
Powerful waterfalls squeezed through a narrow canyon. One of the must see natural attractions along the Icefields Parkway. Car parking with picnic facilities lie a short way off the main highway then it is a very short walk to the falls themselves with several vantage points including a bridge over the falls with views to the towering Rockies behind.
