Yoho National Park Things to Do: 103 reviews and 198 photos


"Wapta" means in "running water" in Stony Indian, and these magnificent falls are a very nice diversion plus a great chance to stretch your legs if you are on a long road trip. The trail from the parking lot is about 50 min to walk or 2.5 km, and is quite easy.

Directions: Only accessible if you are east bound on the Trans Canada. Please refer to your handy dandy Yoho Parks map in your guide, which you unfailingly picked up at the park gate.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
