This is like one of the big 5 in Yosemite so be sure to see is. You can see it from a distance at tunnel view but can also park close and walk up to the bottom of the fall. Try to go late in...More

This waterfall was booming during my visit in early June. The parking lot was partly flooded. Most folks had a quick walk up (got wet) and then left, so parking became available often. I had no trouble finding a spot. There is also a set...More

We parked and did the short hike up to the base of the falls. It was very wet but the river was raging with rapids and added more beautiful scenery to what was already extraordinary! Breathtaking for sure!

These waterfalls are the absolute most stunning in all of California! I know there are other comparable ones but the spray from the water can reflect the sunlight and show color.

We just drove by on our way out of Yosemite, not knowing we would pass by this beautiful falls... worth a stop for some nice pictures. Take your time and enjoy them.

We did this hike with a 3 and 5 year old on a June afternoon. The trail was very wet and there was A LOT of mist to where it felt like rain. Take a rain jacket. It was a lot of fun.

We were here 8 years ago after a record winter snowfall and this year did not disappoint! Be prepared to get wet even before you get close to it.

I was very excited to go see Bridalveil Falls - you can see it from so many spots in the valley. But, when we go there, it was extremely disappointing. It was cool, but the "hike" was probably .1 miles, it was paved, and SUPER...More

There seems to be a lot of ups and downs for these falls depending when you visit. Between March & June they are booming (May the water was even in the car park). Toilets and a decent sized car park available. Worth a stop but...More

Yes, it should be but minimal, with the local fires it might be limited viewing or possibly closed...I would check the Yosemite official site just to be certain.
