Best Whistler Waterfalls - Holloway FallsHolloway Falls is the beautiful waterfalls you see partway along the Joffre Lakes Provincial Park trail.  Located between Middle Joffre Lake and Upper Joffre Lake, Holloway Falls is a wide, crashing torrent of white water emerging from the forest and rushing past the trail.  Huge boulders and logs along the edge with swirling water rushing around them.  On a hot day, you can easily dunk your head in the rushing water and cool down.

Joffre Creek flows from Upper Joffre Lake to Middle Joffre Lake with Holloway Falls an equal distance between them.  Joffre Creek then flows quite some distance to Lower Joffre Lake.  It then flows out of Joffre Lakes Provincial Park and runs along parallel to the Sea to Sky Highway for several kilometres to Lillooet Lake.  Holloway Falls is not dramatically impressive like other Whistler waterfalls like Brandywine Falls or Alexander Falls.  It is more like Rainbow Falls, in that it flows down more gradually, and not over a massive and abrupt cliff.  Though compared to Rainbow Falls, Holloway Falls is quite a larger torrent of water flowing through.  Joffre Lakes Provincial Park is a beautiful and popular park, well known for its brilliantly, glacier coloured lakes.  All three Joffre Lakes are extraordinarily turquoise coloured.  On a sunny day, the lakes are hypnotizingly beautiful, surrounded by gorgeous mountains and untouched wilderness.  The park gets very busy on weekends and the parking lot fills up fast.  Though Joffre Lakes Provincial Park is 62 kilometres(38.3 miles) from Whistler Village, the comparatively easy hiking trail and beautiful scenery draws hikers to it year-round.  The Joffre Lakes trail is considerably easier than the trails to Wedgemount Lake, Garibaldi Lake, Russet Lake or Elfin Lakes, which is definitely an advantage that overcomes the driving distance to the trailhead.
