Description

Takkakaw Falls is a spectacular waterfall that plunges from Daly Glacier into Yoho Valley over a distance of 302 meters (992 feet) making it one of the tallest in British Columbia. The mountainous backdrop of Yoho Valley makes the falls all the better to enjoy.

Short Walk: Technically you can see the falls from the parking area, but be sure to take the short Takakkaw Falls Trail to its base. To get to the parking area take seasonal Yoho Valley Road north from just east of Field to its northern end. There are sharp and narrow switchbacks partway up the paved road that make it unsuitable for RVs/Trailers.
Other amazing views are available from the Iceline Trail and along the beginning of the Laughing Falls Trail.

Family Friendly: With a campsite and parking that lead to a paved trail right to its base Takkakaw Falls is great trip for the whole family.
