This jaw-dropping, natural wonder located in Squamish (BC) will give your Instagram followers travel envy.

Towering above Howe Sound in Squamish, British Columbia, at 335 meters, Shannon Falls is BC's third largest waterfall, with two hiking loops for both beginner and intermediate hikers. 

The first of the two trails is approximately 350 meters in length and allows for a birds-eye view of the Falls, looking up from its base. Another 150 meters will lead you to look-out platform where you can view the Falls from a slightly higher elevation. Shannon Falls Provincial Park also has a trail which connects to one of the trails leading to the Stawamus Chief, making it simple and convenient to see two stunningly beautiful sites in one hike. 

Whether you're a photographer, tourist, or hiker, you'll love Shannon Falls for its achingly fantastical views and scenic hikes through the Park's old growth forest. If foot traffic is low, you may even spot the Grizzly which lives in the Park and likes to peek out at the Falls from time to time. 

Located along the Sea to Sky Highway, Shannon Falls Provincial Park is a must-see stop along your travels through Squamish. If you visit the Sea to Sky Gondola, you'll get a sneak peak at the top of the Falls from your gondola ride both on your way up and your way down.
