Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park

Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park

Bridal Veil Falls is an impressive waterfall located right next to Highway 1, in the Fraser Valley between Chilliwack and Hope. The falls spread out and cascade over the rocks to look a little bit like a giant bride’s veil, so maybe that is why it was given that name. I love waterfalls!

This walk will get your heart pumping, but…

This hike starts with a steep trail through woods, up to the top of Elk Mountain. It then levels off and becomes a gorgeous ridge-walk along to Mount Thurston. This was my first hike near Chilliwack and the mountains near the US border….
