One of the most breathtaking visits to Yosemite was to experience it on New Years Day in the middle of winter at 26 degrees. The falls were beautiful and the backdrop with water freezing as it was falling down the hillside spectacular. I am so lucky to have capture this incredible beauty with my family and two grandsons who are... More

We went on September and the top rocks were moist, but we couldn`t see any falls. If you go in the fall, don`t bother going up closer, there are other nicer trails.

The short trail takes you to the base of this falls. While not as full in winter, the crowds were sparse, and the vista beautiful.

When we were there, the water levels were low, so the waterfall was thiner than usual according to the people who visited this National Park before. But we loved the Bridalveil Falls! We climbed all over the boulders, until I couldn't feel my legs any more.

I was looking forward to the waterfalls of Yosemite as the highlight of my trip but unfortunately it was only a tiny trickle as California was in a drought during my visit. Yosemite is still very beautiful but the treks and views are not the same.

Great place to take photos would be from the Bridal Veil Falls viewing point. Usually there are little people at the viewing point but the falls may be a bit too far away to be photographed clearly.

I still recommend this place, I have read many good reviews about Bridalveil Falls...so I will still put a very good review for this place, simply because the place for sure is awesome but my timing is not right. When I was in CA, there was drought, so yeah no water in waterfalls. I had a good hike thou!

I have loved Bridalveil falls since the first time I saw it 20 years ago!!! It is perhaps the most beautiful falls in the park, hence one of the most crowded. The views from the end of the pathway are sublime. But, there is a way I took that was way more peaceful. I went to the right of the... More

We had a spectacular view of the fall from the road, so we decide to stop!! Our kids were so excited!! It was a short walk to the bottom of the fall, and more than worth it!!
