Located Northeast of Mission, BC, Cascade Falls is a scenic waterfall that can be viewed from a suspension bridge that crosses the river, just in front of the falls. The short walk uphill to the falls makes the long drive worth the trip.
From the parking lot, walk towards the metal gate by the hill (note: sometimes the gate is not noticeable if it is open) and walk up towards a trail that begins on the right. Follow the trail up a steep hill as it winds to the right and within minutes you reach a set of wooden stairs. Climb the wooden stairs until you are just underneath the suspension bridge, where you get the first scenic view of Cascade Falls.
Walk up the remaining stairs and cross the suspension bridge. During the early spring months and after a rainfall, an enormous amount of water flows over the rocks and into the canyon down below. Continue across the bridge to the wooden platform on the far side.
The wooden platform is as close as you can get to the falls and when a lot of water is dropping into the canyon, you can feel the mist from this platform. After enjoying the view, cross back over the suspension bridge and walk back down the wooden stairs, returning to the parking lot via the gravel trail.
