Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park is a scenic day-use area where visitors can enjoy picnicking, hiking, and viewing the spectacular Bridal Veil Falls, the sixth-highest waterfall in Canada, which tumbles almost 400 feet (122 metres) over a smooth rock face, creating a “veil-like” effect.

Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park, 10 miles (15 km) east of Chilliwack, encompasses about 93 hectares (250 acres) with almost half being lake and marsh. The original lake was drained in the 1950s during the process of mining mari from the bottom sediments. To restore the habitat, Ducks Unlimited and Fisheries and Oceans built a water control structure with a fish ladder in 1992 to allow the lake to reflood and create valuable wetland habitat. Wildlife viewing, hiking and day picnics are popular, but boats or flotation devices are not permitted on the lake.

Bridal Falls Travel Centre on Bridal Falls Road in Rosedale offers campsites and an RV park, and facilities which include a mineral museum, restauarant, food store, gas bar, and two gift shops catering to travellers.

Paragliding: Bridal Falls is a world famous hanggliding and paragliding site that is not only flyable but also soarable just about every fair weather day in the summer. There are multiple landing zones and two well-groomed launches: an upper and a lower, both of which require access by four-wheel-drive vehicles. The Lower Launch is only 20 minutes from Highway 1. It is well groomed and is WNW facing at 2,500′ (750 m) ASL and is mainly used by paragliders. This launch is not recommended for new pilots due to cross winds normally experienced. Swirling winds at this site make it difficult to launch safely. Be cautious and please contact local pilots before flying. Nonetheless, it is possible to launch from here, bench up to the Upper Launch at 5,000′, top land, launch again, top land on lower launch and drive down. A very unique site. Views of the Coast Mountains and the beautiful Fraser Valley with its quilted pastures and snow capped mountains glowing in the fading light of the setting sun are breathtaking. Bridal Falls is suitable for both hanggliders and paragliders, and is flyable on almost every day during the summer. The flying season runs from early June to mid September.

To access the Bridal Falls flying site, travel east on Chilliwack Lake Road from Vedder Crossing due south of Sardis. Turn north up the Chipmunk Creek road, left over Chipmunk Creek and then take the first west fork. Near the summit, take the right fork and then turn south at the ridge top to the launch site.

Further north is Harrison Hot Springs, a getaway of choice for coastal urbanites. Considered the Jewel of the Fraser Valley, Harrison Hot Springs is nestled amongst the Coastal Mountains on the southern shore of the 75 km long Harrison Lake.
