Did this hike with my wife and 5-month old (he's in a carrier) on 8/28. Wow what a local gem! The trail isn't maintained so there are lots of overgrown shrubs first half the way in but it was totally manageable. Before entering the forest there's no shade (for ~15 minutes) so a hat will definitely help. The trail itself is easy - first half is flat, the second half is a little rugged but typical runners will do. No mosquitos when we were there (a great plus!), just some small harmless bugs flying around. We got to the falls in about 35 minutes and wow what an awesome sight! The falls isn't that tall but it was very nicely lit by the sun and the water wasn't too cold and we we able to get our feet wet. There's a nice breeze at the falls which made the perfect lunch spot. Overall this is a highly recommended, short and scenic hike!

    I did this yesterday along with Lindeman in the 33 C heat & smoke. It feels much cooler once you get into the trees and very refreshing at the falls. At less than 3 KM it's more of a stroll than a hike, although the trail to the upper falls is a bit rough -- bring mid-hikers, your ankles will thank you. I recommend mid-week as I only encountered two people on my way out of the trees.

    It's actually easy to find. The trail head is about 2.7 KM from the Chilliwack Lake Park Gate. There's a pole on the left with 2017 painted on it -- in blue. There are no flags on the way in, until you hit the forest -- just go through the ditch and follow the road around -- hooks left. The entrance is at 49°05'58.7"N 121°28'48.8"W -- approximate address is 63100 Chilliwack Lake Road. https://goo.gl/vzWUYf

        It's a wonder this trail has been kept fairly secret - gotta say I like it that way. There are wonderful trail head and directional markers all through this area of so many wonderful day hikes for all to go. This one remains a bit of a local sweet escape. Nice.

          Awesome reward for such a short and easy hike. Took me ~75 minutes including breaks at both falls. The real challenge with this hike is finding the place! As of June 26 2017 the hydro pole is still tagged with '2017' but the 'FALLS' rock is no more.

          To add to previous comments, it is 36.9km to the '2017' hydro pole from VEDDER RIVER BRIDGE/CHILLIWACK LAKE RD. I strongly suggest resetting your trip spedo at the start of the road. If you come to the residential street on the right side of Chilliwack Lake Rd. you've gone too far.

            Great family hike.The falls are beautiful.
            Could be hard to find-it's approx. 26 km from the Timihi bridge heading towards Chilliwack lk on the left.
            Watch for the painted 2017 on the electrical pole,as mentioned in above comment,and old logging rd for trailhead.

              There is no obvious hints to where the trail starts except for the 2017 that has been painted on an electric pole, and you have to watch for it closely. We did find it but it's easy to miss.

              The hike itself is really short but the incredible waterfall makes it worth it. We were back at the car in about 45 minutes, didn't stay long at the falls.

                You REALLY need to put better directions to the parking area / trail head. I tried to find this after short-turning a hike at Lindeman Lake to escape the crowds. I'm sure I was only a KM or two from Bosumarne but I could locate any way-finding along the a road full of trail head markers. Could you post GPS coordinates for the parking and the trail head?

                  A long drive but worth it as the waterfall is beautiful. Only saw 2 other people but I bet this trail is going to become popular.
