Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park is located on the Trans-Canada Highway just east of Rosedale, British Columbia, Canada, part of the City of Chilliwack. The community of Bridal Falls is located adjacent to the falls and park was well as the interchange between the Trans-Canada and BC Highway 9 and has a variety of highway-based tourism services.
It is located near the 38th highest waterfall in British Columbia (Bridal Veil Falls) and is commonly stated incorrectly as the 4th tallest in Canada. The falls drop 122 metres (400 feet) over a wide rock face, creating a "veil-like" effect, however, only the bottom 200-250 feet can clearly be viewed from the base, due to significant foreshortening due to the viewing-points' location at the baase of very steep mountainside. It is located at the south end of the land set aside as provincial Park. Its source is from Larch Mountain and flows into Bridal Creek where it travels to Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park and finally to the Fraser River.
During drier summer months, the volume of the water decreases significantly, reducing the visual effect of the waterfall.
Bridal Veil Falls tend to freeze during cold winters and creates a wall of unstable ice. Although it is nice to look at, the base of the falls becomes an extremely hazardous area and the park remains closed during the winter season.
Bridal Veil Falls was named in the 1800s by the village of Popkum. In the early 1900s, the village utilized the waterfall with a hydro-electric generator to power the chalet and heated swimming pool in the village. Only the concrete foundation of the generator can be found today.
