Canada Brandywine Falls Lookout Trail

Added by

Take a short, 1km roundtrip walk to this stunning 70 metre waterfall. 

Brandywine Falls is a spectacular 70 metre waterfall. It is best seen from the viewpoint which also presents some marvelous views of Daisy Lake and the surrounding mountains. But you can also get to the bottom with a bit of scrambling down the side of the cliff.

Brandywine Falls is located along the Sea To Sky Highway (Highway #99) between Squamish and Whistler. Located just 11km (7 miles) south of Whistler on the east side of the Sea To Sky Highway, Brandywine Falls is easily accessible with a large parking lot and markings to the start of the short walk to the falls.

How to Get There

Beautiful waterfall

This is a great place to stretch your legs on highway 99. The only lame part is that it can get pretty crowded and when you are trying to take a picture of the falls people tend to get in the way.

Short Walk To The Viewpoint

This is a great pit stop off the Sea-to-Sky, it's a relatively short walk to the viewpoint of the falls. Keep in mind, it's not technically legal to hike down to the base of the falls and you could face a fine, but that's up to you.

Great Stop

We drove past the signs for Brandywine a million times on the way back home before stopping once and realized what we had been missing. It's a great place to stretch your legs and appreciate some nature before you're back in the car!

Incredible Waterfall!

We went in March after skiing in Whistler, very awesome, no-one was there. Somehow you can get down to the base, we couldn't figure it out.

Beautiful Waterfall

Can make a quick little stop when driving on 99 towards Whistler. Easy parking and a very short trek to the viewpoint of the falls!

A Nice Trail Walk

The falls are cool, but was pleasantly surprised to find a 4K gravel trail walk that leads out to Whistler Bungee too. Watched some people jump off the bridge and headed back to the falls-an entertaining and quick afternoon for beginners or a trail run.

The scramble down the cliff is a little treacherous, but the view from the bottom is worth it. There's one cliff towards the beginning you have to climb/jump down which is the one tough spot. My 6'6 boyfriend could handle it fine but I took the simpler path to the right which goes through a small water spring and avoids the cliff. After you get past that spot it's a pretty easy climb to the bottom then a couple minute walk through the forest. About 1-2hrs roundtrip depending how long you hang at the bottom.

not bad

they took out the rope that allows you to *more easily* get down the side of the cliff but other than that challenge, not too shabby

Growing up meters from the beach it was no surprise that my love for photography began in and around the ocean.


 My consistent drive to get up every morning is fueled by the excitement and enjoyment of capturing visionary photographs of things that inspire me, whilst having a ton of fun along the way.


 I love the feeling adventure photography has given me, to explore new places and strive to capture the outdoors. I hope to inspire people through my work.
