We haven’t been to Bow River Falls for a long time, and since James loves waterfalls we figured we’d drive into Banff and show him the falls.

The parking lot is right next to a large paved area next to the Bow River, near the northwest end of Mount Rundle and the Banff Springs Hotel. We took a few photos along the riverbank and then climbed up the stairs to view the falls from above. James did a fantastic job walking up and down all the stairs by himself!

Trip length: ~1.5km
Total Ascent/Descent: ~40m
