Crescent Falls are a series of two waterfalls located on the Bighorn River in west-central Alberta, Canada.

The falls are located a few kilometres upstream of the river's confluence with the North Saskatchewan River. A 4.5 kilometer (3 mi) long trail leads north from David Thompson Highway (between Abraham Lake and Nordegg) to the falls. The Crescent Falls Provincial Recreation Area is established immediately up-river from the falls.[1]

The waterfall is two-tiered and has a height of 25 metres (82 ft).[2]
