Beautiful place to visit

Visited in April and despite the low snowfall and drought they were still amazing. Take a camera. Saw a deer right near the carpark too.

Each pre-pull off stop is worth your time and view. I never felt rushed. Thinking of the history is just one of the many rewards you take away as-well-as memories and pictures.

Fantastic hike and good exercise. Bring a windbreaker for your hike in April as it gets a little chilly in the mist of the falls and a little wet. Loved the fact that the trail wasn't too busy.

We were happy that the falls were still spectacular in spite of the drought, low snowpack. Several of the other falls were not so full...this one was lovely!!

This is not your everyday waterfall. The way the wind takes the stream of water from the top and blows from side to side gives it its name. Visit in the late afternoon, and the sun creates a rainbow through the mist. Stand at the bottom, up the short, paved trail, and get pleasantly rained on. It's surreal!

This is one of the first waterfalls you go by when you first get in the park, you can see it from the road. There is plenty of parking, and a short walk (0.5 mile round trip) along an easy path takes you to the bottom of the fall.

Easy to get into and out from this cool sight of the park. A short hike will bring you to this stunning falls. You'll see forest , a creek, some huge granite rocks along the way into the falls. One great photo I took was when I let my mom stood on a stable rock by the viewing area -... More

Bridalveil falls is just a short walk from the busy parking lot. This fall has a 620 foot drop. One can rock scramble to get closer to the fall and feel the light mist. The park warns about accidents and even death in the area as rocks can be slippery. Bathroom facilities in the area.

Bridalveil is beautiful. Easy access short hike to the falls. A proposal happened while we were there very nice!! It does dry up so recommended time to go is spring or early summer especially during a drought year.

1,000 feet/5 minutes walk and you can see the beauty of Bridalveil Falls. You can even see it from the parking lot. The climb though shorter than Vernal Falls is much more challenging as you are climbing through smooth and slippery rocks, not a trail.
