Two Falls in Yoho National Park for the price of one!

An 18 km hike with approx 300 m elevation gain, with good variety, several waterfalls, Twin Falls themselves, Twin Falls Tea House (especially if it's open), a walk through a rock field with great views, a dried up lake bed.

Start at the Takakkaw Falls parking lot and follow the well marked trail towards Twin Falls. Along the way you will see several falls, and a few lookouts showcasing other falls in the distance. At 8km you get to twin falls where there are benches to sit at and enjoy the view. You can also take a different path back through a rock garden that meets back up with the main trail for a change of scenery.

Very Impressive

We did only the Takakkaw falls but they were amazing! It's only a short walk from the parking lot to get to the falls. Next time, we'll definitely do the long hike to see all the waterfalls in that region.

Gorgeous waterfalls!

Takakkaw Falls is a gorgeous waterfall and when we went in July it was fully flowing from the glacier runoff! Definitely recommend exploring this whole area.
