Tangle Falls - Jasper

Tangle Falls is one of the most photographed falls in Jasper National Park. They are absolutely stunning and can be seen right from the road. 

I was working at the Columbia Icefield this summer and Tangle Falls was right around the Skywalk. If you are leaving from the Icefiled Discovery Centre, Tangle Falls is maybe a kilometer from the Skywalk, which is towards Jasper, and on your right hand side.

The falls are stunning, and tangle around each other, just as their name suggests. The parking lot is across the street (on the left) and not much of a hike at all, unless you decided to summit Tangle Falls Peak. 

When I stopped there we decided to climb up to the top of the falls, it was a little sketchy, not going to lie, and involved climbing rocks not just hiking up. The view from the top of the falls is beautiful and worth it. Given the angle, you can't see any of the people from the bottom and it looks out to mountains across the street. 

Once you get to the top you can't see the actual falls, but the view is still spectacular. 

This is more of a stop on the side of the road as opposed to a hike, but it is stunning and worth the stop, or even the drive by. 

I don't actually have a picture of the falls, not sure how I missed that as I drove by it probably 100 times, but you can find more photos here.

If climbing to the top of the falls:

Level: Beginner 

Difficulty: 5/10

Elevation Gain: approx. 40m
