Who wouldn't want to see a waterfall named Bridalveil Falls? Thankfully when we visited Yosemite this year, the waterfalls were still running, so Bridalveil was beautiful.

I expected much more from this waterfall...much preferred Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls. Bridalveil Falls just wasn't all that impressive...seemed not to have much happening.

It was very small in July, but it is still nice to walk up to close to the fall. The rocks looked very colorful.

I'm sure in the spring this waterfall is ripping. I was there during wildfire time and it wasn't much more than a trickle. Still - pretty cool considering how high it is!

little disappointed with the water fall, which was in reality just a trickle after we had hiked up to the base of the falls. Obviously due to the time in the year and I assume it is more visually dramatic early in the year/spring

Fantastic falls. A short hike from the parking area but worth seeing. Seeing it in August means the water flow was light but still a must see.

If this waterfall was anywhere else it would be amazing, but when it's surrounded by everything else in Yosemite it gets a little lost. Watching the wind whip the water around is still pretty amazing though.

The beauty of mother nature is awe inspiring while visiting Yosemite Park. Bridalveil Falls is no exception to the rule. Spend time taking in the magnitude of the surrounding area, the power of the water, the height of the falls, flora, wow! Just beautiful.

Easy to get to and easy to get lost in. Climbing the rocks up to the base of the falls is a challenge and not for the faint at heart but the resultless are stunning. Go in late spring early summer. The crowds are a bit less and if there is decent snow pack, the falls will reply with thunderous... More

The late morning light on Bridalveil Falls in late May is not the best for photographing the falls. The falls were flowing, but the sun just wasn't right. Regardless of the light, if the falls are flowing, do not fail to stop.
