Cascade Falls Regional Park is a waterfall park located northeast of the community of Mission, British Columbia, Canada.
The Cascade Falls Regional Park includes a hiking path, viewing deck, picnic day use area, pit toilets and a parking lot. The highlight of the park is a 30 metre (98 foot) waterfall dropping into a canyon pool.
This Vancouver waterfall park measures 16.5 hectares in size. To reach the falls one must follow a gravel one way walking path along the high banks of some cliffs.
The path explores a forest of cedar and hemlock trees. The river sounds seem to always be present. The path leads to a wooden viewing deck overlooking the falls providing great views of the gorge, river and falls.
The trail climbs up wooden stairs and follows a gravel path for about 750 metres to the viewing deck. It is an uphill walk, albeit short. The path is protected by a fence when the path wanders near the edge of the cliffs.
The cascading falls are situated at the bottom of a deep gorge. From the falls to the lower valley the elevation drops 18 metres before the river connects to Stave Lake. Near the lower pools parking lot and trailhead leading to Cascade Falls there is a day use picnic area and pit toilets.
Please be noted that the trail may be too steep for some. There are stairs and it can be muddy and slippery. And be aware that the trail follows a cliff, hence the fence... so do not wander off the path and please keep kids close.
