May 23, 2014: Athabasca Falls & Mount Kerkeslin


The Athabasca Falls are among the most powerful and breathtaking waterfalls in the Rocky Mountains. Located on the upper Athabasca River, approximately 30 kilometres south of the townsite of Jasper, this powerful picturesque waterfall is known for its thunderclap force due to the large quantity of water falling into the gorge. The falls has a height of 80ft (24m) and a width of 60ft (18m).

Athabasca Falls sits right next to the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) and is a very popular point of interest to tourists, because very little walking is required. The walking trail takes you to the falls on the top edge, through a series of canyon walls, down to the Athabasca River bed below.

What’s the mountain peak behind Athabasca Fall?

Mount Kerkeslin :-) Although only 2984 metres high, this classic mountain often dominates the view from the north as one travels south on Icefields Parkway from Jasper.
