Panther Falls are a hidden treasure in Banff National Park, near the Icefields Centre at the Northwest end of the park. The falls flow along the Nigel River and skirt beneath highway 93. To get a good view of the falls, you’ll certainly get wet from the powerful spray, but it’s well worth it.
Seeing these falls will take only a bit of work. First park at the Bridal Veil Falls viewpoint, at about 12km south of the Icefields Centre. A wooden sign pointing at Bridal Veil falls is apparent on the side of the road. From there, look for a washed-out section of the gravel shoulder, leading down towards the river. Follow the trail below til you go as far as you can north on the trail, you’ll find Panther Falls beckoning around a corner. Stay close to the edge of the hillside and view the falls from either river side or from higher up.
