Cascade Falls

Northeast of Mission, BC, you’ll find a photographic gem called the Cascade Falls Regional Park. This 22 hectares park includes a dramatic 30-meter waterfall nestled on the northern, western flank of Nicomen Mountain. Nicomen Mountain is a 1,221 m (4,006 ft) peak and is the southernmost major summit of the Douglas Ranges in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland region.

I arrived at the park around 9:30 am on a sleepy Wednesday and was thrilled to find an empty parking lot looking almost magical. The hike to the waterfall was easy, with a well-maintained trail that included an extensive set of stairs for the last five meters. The park is a popular spot for waterfall photographers and sports a sturdy metal suspension bridge over Cascade Falls Creek near the falls. Sturdy enough to shoot at 1/2s without any vibration.

If you are ever in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia and want to practice your waterfall photography, you couldn’t ask for a better spot.
