WOW

Awesome! Just Awesome! There are no words to describe the beauty. A short hike on a paved trail. Lots of stairs, but worth the hike!

Even in a season of drought, this waterfall is wonderful! A short hike from the parking lot or shuttle stop brings you to the base. Looking up, you see this billowing downfall of water, looking for all the world like it's namesake, a bridal veil!

The falls here just a mist, but my sons and I had a great time climbing on all the huge boulders right up to the falls. It had just rained so it was super slippery

We just visited in late June, and Bridalveil Falls is so pitiful. There's hardly any water. If you can't see the falls from Tunnel View, it's probably not worth the trek. Also, the bathrooms here smell terrible! Don't plan on making this your pit stop. None of the other bathrooms I encountered were nearly so bad.

Easy walk to the base of the falls. They are so pretty the way they change as the wind blows. They really look like a long flowing bridal veil!

Despite the rain and crowds, the falls were beautiful! Everything is very green, full of life - squirrels and bluebirds up close as well. There was the most friendly group at a table outside the visitor's center with FREE Bible brochures and books in many languages.

It takes a lot to get my teenage boys excited. Especially when it comes to nature. We scrambled up the rocks at Bridalveil Falls and they never wanted to leave. If you have the mobility and a good pair of shoes, then this is a great family adventure. Just try to keep your soles dry as the rocks can get... More

When we saw this waterfall there wasn't much water coming over it so the effect was not as good as it could have been due the drought in this area.

really disappointing since it was barely running. Wasn't worth the short hike. The bathrooms are absolutely disgusting.
