“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We thought this would be cool, to drive under the falls, but there was barely a trickle of water, and it was a pull-off on the road to 'drive under'. Not worth it unless you are already in the area.

This is the third time I have passed by Bridal Veil Falls and there has been no more than a trickle of water.

“A Trickle”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

When we were there, the rest of the falls were raging from recent rain, but still this was a mere trickle. We heard many people saying they could not wait to see this and drive underneath, but I am afraid they were very disappointed. Thank goodness it does not matter because there are so many awesome fall nearby.

“Nothing special compared to other natural attractions...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Just a trickle of water off of the side of the road when we went by. It's neat because you can drive beneath it and I'm sure it's more interesting when the water flow is greater.

“It was just a trickle of water for us....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I'm not sure if we visited during the wrong time or if it's always like this but the "waterfall" that we drove behind was just a trickle of water. It was a little bit of a let down, having just come from Dry Falls, but something to check off our waterfall list :)
