This waterfall almost spills out over the Sea-to-Sky Highway on the drive from Vancouver to Whistler (Highway 99). It's the third-highest in the province, but it's also the most easily accessible. Although higher, both Della Falls (Strathcona Provincial Park) and Hunlen Falls (Tweedsmuir Provincial Park) require backcountry hiking.

Height: 335 meters (1,099 feet)
Access: Walk five minutes on a paved trail to the viewpoint
Park: Shannon Falls Provincial Park
Getting There: Located 4 km (2.5 miles) south of Squamish
BC Region: Sea-to-Sky
