Stanley Falls is located on the East side of the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) about 97 kilometers south of Jasper. The access gate here can be difficult to find, so look for two large culverts that go under the highway.
|How many places can you take in 7 or 8 waterfalls in under 2 miles?? This is one of those places.
Once you manage to find the trailhead, follow the dike along the small creek east toward the old road, where you will turn right. This takes you to Beauty Creek where old bridge ruins mark the start of a broken trail that will take you up and then to your left. Then enjoy the relatively short walk along the banks of Beauty Creek to Stanley Falls. Similar to Johnston Canyon there are several waterfalls to enjoy along the well trodden trail. Note that Johnston Canyon has pavement and railings along most of its length and Stanley Falls does not. Some trail edges have sharp drops so be careful
The trail ends at Stanley Falls, a post-card waterfall cascading ice-cold water to the valley floor. Hikers might want to continue another couple of kilometers along the difficult creek bed as there are 3 more waterfalls to take in.
