What people say

"Takakkaw Falls Trail: 1.1 miles (moderate) Takakkaw Falls is one of the most powerful and amazing waterfalls in British Columbia and is very famous in Yoho National Park. It's even known for being the second-tallest waterfall in Canada. The parking lot is small and mostly full all year unless arriving early in the morning for sunrise. "
"Takakkaw Falls is a majestic spectacle that embodies the raw power of nature, plunging from towering heights into a pristine alpine valley. The sight and sound of this waterfall are awe-inspiring, offering a captivating reminder of the forces that have shaped the rugged landscapes of Yoho National Park."
"This is the 2nd highest waterfall in Canada (over 300 metres high!). ✨ Things to Know: -It's a popular attraction so don't expect to be alone -The falls are a short walk (1.3 km) from the parking -Yoho road is only open seasonally from late June to mid-October"
