Takakkaw Falls October 5, 2014

This waterfall is located in Yoho National Park near Field, British Columbia. The falls have a free fall of over 830 feet. From the parking lot there is a trail where you can hike right up to the falls. The road is a bit of fun as well. Take Yoho Valley Road from the Trans Canada Highway about eight miles to the falls. The road is paved but it is narrow in places and there are two switchbacks making it impossible to tow any trailers past them. You are right in the Rockies and the trip is well worth it.

  1. That view from the base of the falls looks like something from the dawn of time. I'd expect to see some mammoths or wooly rhinos down there.

  2. Must be something to see and hear when the snow melts!
