Kitchener Creek Falls
   Alberta, Canada

This waterfall has been surveyed, mapped and measured in person by the World Waterfall Database.
Photo of Kitchener Creek Falls Like practically all of the streams feeding from the various finger glaciers stemming from the Columbia Icefield, Kitchener Creek cascades its way down a glacially carved valley toward the Sunwapta River. Like nearby Woolley Creek Falls, Kitchener Creek twists down a gnarled gorge carved out of glacial deposits overlayed on top of stratified bedrock. The falls on Kitchener Creek, however, are quite a bit more visible. The 400 foot series of cascades can be seen from the Icefields Parkway for a kilometer between Tangle Falls and the viewpoint overlooking Cataract Canyon just up the hill. At first glance, it looks like more of a long talus cascade than anything else, but close examination reveals that the first 400 feet of the creek’s descent to the valley floor is, in fact, descending over bedrock and thus qualifies to be classified as a legitimate waterfall.


  • Kitchener Creek Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
