Yoho National Park Things to Do: 104 reviews and 203 photos


One of the highest waterfalls in Canada, Takkakaw Falls is a highly-visited area, but very much worth the trip. You can visit late June to early October, and be forewarned that the road is very steep with lots of switchbacks.

Some very scenic hikes also start from Takkakaw Falls (more on the difficult side), but there is some foot paths that do go around and near the falls. I do recommend you bring hand sanitizer if you wish to use the facilities, as more often than not, the water for the sinks is not working.

Address: Yoho Valley Road
Directions: It's best to get a Parks Map when you enter at the gate to show you where it is exactly off the Trans Canada. The Yoho Valley Road turn-off is well-signed.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
