Easy paved path. August isn't a great time to go - very little water, mostly just some mist at the top of the falls. Go in March/April timeframe and it will be spectacular when you have the rain and ice/snow melt. It's in Yosemite Valley, so it's always an amazing place to be.

You get to walk under the waterfall and enjoy the view of it coming down the hill. Just breath taking.

A short 10 minute walk from the parking lot. Beautiful path leading to the falls. The closer you get to the falls the more mist there is.

I climbed the dry river bed rocks to the pool where I laid down to gaze at the waterfall above. It was the middle of the afternoon and the falling water would create a mist that would dance with the changing winds in between shafts of light. It was memorizing. Unexpected experience which I loved.

We visited Bridalveil Falls recently, and had a good visit. We visited late in the summer, plus the current drought reduced the falls to a mist. But we had a great time climbing the rocks to see some of the pools created. To see the falls, go early in the season. Even though there was not a lot of water,... More

This water fall is nice to view while it only trickles over the edge or is gushing so hard the mist will soak you. Wheel chair accessible and a very short hike to the base.Don't miss it!!!

In early July the waterfall was just a mist of water falling from the rock above. It was cool in it's one way so we were not disappointed as its a short walk from the parking lot on the way to Glacier Point. It would most likely be awesome with the snow runoff. It was dry on July 1 when... More

Though disappointing that it was dry, it's still worth it to come and check it out. Saw a little rainbow at the bottom of the falls while there.

Short walk to the main view of the waterfall. We decided to take a chance and climb the rocks to get closer. I only had the nerve to make it a little over halfway. Rocks were slippery and steep in certain spots. I would recommend good shoes and water to drink if you decide to climb these. Around the halfway... More

Only had a little water coming over the top though nothing reached the bottom so the stream was dry.
