Hike to Cascade Falls, British Columbia

Canada Cascade Falls Regional Park

Added by

Hike to Cascade Falls near Mission BC to stand on the suspension bridge while watching the waterfall descend almost 100 feet to the pool below.

When you get to the parking lot go past the access gate and follow the very well maintained trail. The hike to the viewing platform is all uphill, but short. After a couple minutes you will reach wooden stairs that take you to a viewing platform as well as to the suspension bridge where you can cross it to a secondary viewing platform.

There are some very steep cliffs around the falls so be very careful while hiking around the area.

Directions: To get to Cascade Falls follow Lougheed Hwy east out of Mission. Pass Hatzic lake on north side of road, turn north on Sylvester Rd. Head north and follow the signs. There is lots of parking.

Pack List

  • Water, if you want

from the area

I'm from the area and although cascade falls is beautiful, it's definitely not hard to get to and the constant flow of people is sometimes annoying. it's nice for one time.

very short

the hike is very short and from where I live pretty far for just a 10/15 minute walk. Would suggest going in the summer so you can actually climb down and go into the water to make the trip actually worth it. The waterfall is beautiful don't get me wrong but just far for such a short walk. Maybe plan seeing the falls along with going somewhere else on the way!?
