Description

Added by Tanner Thompson

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.

Reviews

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.

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.
