A quick 5 minute trip for a physically fit person

Stand amidst the forest and view this 60 metre high water fall at Bridal Veil Provincial Park.  Once used as a source of hydro and before that the location of a First Nation’s village dating back to the 1700’s, this day use park has trails, picnic tables, and wildlife watching and is equipped with toilets and water fountains.

The water at the base of the falls chooses a less than ordinary route over exposed tree roots before forming a small creek

Glimpsing the falls through the trees

From parking lot to waterfall is a short trek up a well used path but definitely worth the stop.  Many people scale the base bringing them closer to the falls themselves but this is not recommended and to be avoided during the winter months when ice sheets have been known to fall and the steep slope becomes extremely dangerous.

It’s easy to understand where these falls derive their name from once you watch the water cascade down the cliff-face

Located east of Chilliwack, BC.  Take exit 135 off Highway 1 and follow the signs.
