Very easy half mile hike from the main road. Enjoyed getting fairly close to the falls. I really think the frozen sections are very beautiful. I was glad I wore a heavy coat, gloves and hat as it was colder than it looked. Dogs are allowed if on a leash.

The signs to the falls were easy to follow and parking was very easy. The information about the falls and history of the area were nice to have to make for a "whole" experience of the area and sites.

These waterfalls were very pretty even during the drought. Due to the height of the falls, you get wet from the mist even when there is not a lot of water. We got some great pictures while at the falls and the walk from the parking lot is not that long/ hard either. The parking lot does get full pretty... More

We've been to bridalveil falls a couple of times now and each time we have loved the scenery and the vastness of the falls. It's a great place to visit. Make the effort!

This is a great, easy walk on a paved road with a slight incline. You reach the waterfall within about 10 minutes, if you're not a kid or running to the end of the trail. The views of the waterfall are stunning, and you can get misted on. Some people were climbing on the rocks, though it was pretty slippery... More

You can walk right up to the base of this waterfall. It is just a short hike (5 minute walk) from the parking lot. We also saw several mule deer along the way.

Too bad their wasn't more water but it was still fun and our kids loved climbing the rocks as high as they could go.

Bridal Veil Falls is dramatic and awesome! It sits so high up and it runs so strong (seasonally). I experienced it from well underneath, in the valley, not sure if there's a way to see it from up top or not. It's definitely impressive and worthy of a bunch of photos and good memories. The cliffs are rocky and straight... More
