The Sept of Veil's Edge is located within the Mount Seymour Provincial Park.

Mount Seymour Provincial Park is a 35 kmĀ² park in Vancouver, British Columbia's North Shore Mountains. It is located approximately 15 km from Downtown Vancouver. Access to the park is by way of the all-weather Mount Seymour Road in North Vancouver.

Established in 1936, the park is in a mountain wilderness setting and several mountain peaks lie within its boundaries, including Mount Bishop, Mount Elsay, Runner Peak, and Mount Seymour. The highest elevation in the park is the summit of Mount Bishop at 1509 metres followed by Mount Seymour, for which the park is named, at 1449 metres.

The park contains several lakes, including Elsay Lake (the largest), De Pencier Lake, Gopher Lake, and Goldie Lake. These lakes drain eastward into Indian Arm. Other smaller lakes and ponds drain westward into the Seymour River.

There is an extensive network of mountain biking, hiking, and equestrian trails on the lower mountain, while the upper mountain also serves hikers, mountaineers, picknicking, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowtubing, tobogganing, and backcountry camping. The ski slopes on the mountain are managed by a private operator, Mount Seymour Resorts Ltd.

Due to its proximity to a large metropolitan area, Mount Seymour Provincial Park attracts larger numbers of visitors and recreational users than many other rugged, mountainous areas. This in part, has led to hundreds of lost, stranded or injured hikers, skiers and snowshoers requiring rescue, some of whom have died
