Trail NoticeThe gate to Bridal Veil Falls is closed during the winter and open sometime in May until about mid-October. You should check with BC Parks to ensure the gate and park is open.
Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park is a great day-use park with a picnic area for families and highlighted by a short walk to a waterfall that cascades down the rocks from 60 meters above. The name of the park comes from the waterfall as it's smooth rock is said to create a "veil like" effect from the falling water.
There are two short trails from the parking lot to the waterfall and it's best to do both as a loop. From the parking lot walk to the picnic area and alongside the creek as the trail becomes to climb uphill through the forest. After climbing for 5 minutes, the trail passes over a wooden bridge across the creek and continues uphill as the sound of the waterfall starts to become evident. A few more steps and you arrive at the wooden railings of the viewpoint for the waterfall.
You can either return via the route you came or take the Woodland Trail back as it too will end up at the parking lot area. To take the Woodland trail, immediately after leaving the viewpoint area, go right at the junction and down the wooden steps and back onto the dirt trail. A junction to your left takes you to the picnic area of the park. Go straight and continue along the Woodland Trail as it wraps around the bottom forested section of the park and returns back to the parking lot.
