Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal_veilBridal Veil Falls are a roadside attraction while traveling along the northern section of the Icefields Parkway in  Banff National Park.   If heading to the Icefields Centre or the Columbia icefield, check out these falls along the way, located 12 kms south of the Icefields.  The falls descend for quite a distance, and the normally visible area form the road is actually halfway down the falls!  For an alternative view, see the North Saskatchewan lookoff.  These falls share names with another Bridal Veil Falls, located near Lake Agnes and another in the area of Hope, BC.

Also, you can descend to the bottom of the valley along a pathway just past the gravel slope on the far side of the road.  Look for a spring run-off area and head down from there.  Of course, hidden below are Panther falls.  Albeit smaller than Bridal Veil, a fun discovery for those who choose to explore.
