This is a short hike, only 1.3 kilometers. It is paved and wheelchair accessible. The road to the trailhead is usually open at the end of June, closing early October so I suggest you call (250.343.6783) or stop in at the Visitor Centre in Field to find out if the road is open.

To get to Takakkaw Falls follow the Trans-Canada Highway for 23 km (14 mi) west of Lake Louise until Yoho Valley Road. When accessing from the West, drive 3.7 km (2.3 mi) east of Field on the Trans-Canada Highway and turn left on Yoho Valley Road. Follow this road for 13 km (8 mi) to the parking lot.

At 384 meters, these falls are the second highest in Canada.
