Tangle Creek Falls is one of the most commonly photographed waterfalls in the Icefield Parkways between Jasper and Banff National Park. This is because of its incredibly easy access along the Parkway itself. There is a parking lot directly across from the waterfall allowing you to take a break from your roadtrip and take in the magnificent waterfall right along the road.
The watefall has a drop of 114 feet and has cascading tiers of 14, then 18 and then 13 feet respectively. Tangle Creek Falls are 7km north of the Columbia Icefield Centre. Depending on the time of day, there are usually many tourists and kids climbing all over the falls. For a quiet picture it is best to time your stop in the morning/evenings or when the weather is bad.
Although the history of Tangle Falls is unclear, the rumor is that explorers came over the Wilcox Pass plowed through thick and "tangle" brush throughout the drainage. As you look at the falls themselves, they give off the appearance of being tangled and intertwined amongst each other at the top of the waterfall.
