Are you the friend who loves to share cute animal photos and videos with your friends? If so, we found the perfect outdoor adventure for you. Instead of browsing pictures on the internet, you can get out there and see a forest full of fluffy creatures. You should try this 1.4 km BC waterfall hiking trail, where you'll see tons of adorable squirrels.

Everyone needs to see Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park at least once in their lives. The awe-inspiring falls plunge 1246 feet and are the second-highest waterfall in Canada. 

But once you arrive, you will be filled with a sense of wonder.

This spot feels straight out of Disney's Snow White. You'll feel just like Snow with fluffy animals all around you in the forest (but without the Seven Dwarfs). 

In this area, it is common to spot ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, hares, and even beavers. While these animals are cute, they're definitely not pets! Make sure to admire their adorableness without touching them.

Due to the number of tourists that come here every year, some of the creatures are surprisingly brave. You won't even need a zoom lens to get an up-close photo at one of the Columbian ground squirrels.

While the waterfall is extraordinary, you might end up with more videos of animals on your phone than anything else. 

As for the hike itself, the good news is it couldn't get easier. The route itself is flat the entire way and perfect for all fitness levels

Plus, as it is a major attraction, there is ample parking located right next to the trail.

All you need to do is follow the well-marked route, which will bring you up close to the roaring falls.

At Takakkaw Falls, you'll be able to feel the spray on your face, which is a great way to refresh you when it is hot outside.

Before your visit, it is a good idea to check the Yoho National Parks website for trail conditions. Takakkaw Falls is accessible every year from mid-June until mid-October. 

When it is accessible, the scenic drive is incredible. Every twist and turn provides views of the lush forest and mountain peaks.

Access to the park is $10.00 per person unless you have the Parks Canada Discovery Pass, and then you can enter for free.
