Stanley Falls September 5, 2020

South of Jasper, Alberta just off Highway 93. There is a small parking lot where Beauty Creek meets the Athabasca River. To get to the falls there is a trail that follows the creek. The trail is only 1.6km long but feels shorter. At about the halfway point the terrain goes transitions where the creek is in a deep chasm with sharp cliffs. It is an easy walk with nice scenery along the way.

The steep chasm opens up to where you get to see Stanley Falls. This has been on my list for a couple of years. You can walk down to the base of the falls.

Base of the falls.

Walk up from Stanley Falls and you can see more little waterfalls. There is a waterfall just below Stanley Falls. I could not get a photo of that one due to the steep rock walls.

Looking down to the valley. I made sure to get a drink. Well worth the trip.
