The massive, roaring Athabasca Falls are 30 kilometers (18 miles) south of Jasper on the Athabasca River. Self-guided trails and interpretive exhibits surround the falls. A lookout spot and bridge provide vantage points for photos and contemplation. The falls, surrounded by odd rock formations thousands of years in the making, are also a take-off point for white water rafting. Pack a lunch and grab one of the picnic tables in the warming sun. There are public washrooms and parking areas.
