Squamish : Shannon Falls

Very close to the Stawamus Chief  and the Sea to Sky Gondola is Shannon Falls!  It is 335 meter and the third tallest in BC.  There is a parking lot that they share with the hikers from the Chief, a washroom, and a small convenient store! Most of the people here are hikers while other came here for picnics.  It is located on Hwy 99 – Sea to Sky Highway, and no local buses stops here.

Apparently, the water is so fresh, it was used as the source of water for Carling O’Keefe Brewery ( oh that’s my name!) . (source)

The walk to the closest platform at Shannon Falls isn’t too bad.  It is nicely paved and you cant get lost.

If you are lost, just follow the waterfall or the crowd.

The trip was part of the LandSea Tour and that took us to Horseshoe Bay, Shannon Falls, Britannia Mines, and the Sea to Sky Gondola.
