Between the water no longer flowing off the falls, the incredible amount of smoke from the Creek Fire, along with the the parking area being closed due to construction, BridalVeil Falls was a complete flop for us. Something we were really excited to see, and we didn't get to experience really any of what we were hoping to.

As of our visit on September 13th, the water is flowing and you can still hike up to the base of the falls. There's some restoration work going on in the area, but it didn't hamper us at all. The main deterrent right now is the smoke, which is off and on going from a little foggy to nightfall at noon. I can't wait to go back someday without the fires hampering views.

We visited the first week of August 2020. This time of year, getting to see any water falling is hit and miss (mostly miss). However, we discovered that in the "valley", this waterfall was still flowing. August is the summer time and usually Yosemite Falls and others are bone dry, especially with recent drought years. Bridalveil, fortunately has a different water source and here you can enjoy the view. Normally, one can walk a short distance and get a closer view. During our visit, this was hampered by "restoration work". So, you couldn't walk further or closer than a short distance. Still, it's a nice view if you walk as close as you can. It's just off the valley road.

A beautiful waterfall! Catch it in the right light and it can look like a firefall. It is a short and easy hike to the viewing area. The fall is very beautiful and you will probably get hit with the spray and mist of it. This is especially nice on a hot day. Beware: don’t go beyond the railings. Many have been injured and a couple even killed climbing over the rocks( wet polished granite with moss). It is perfectly safe and enjoyable from the viewing area. Unfortunately this year (2020) the parking lot and trail are closed. The fall can be seen from the road or at other points in the valley.

Do to Covid, the trail up to the falls was closed. However we still had a wonderful view from further down the trail where it was open to hike. Definitely not want to miss!
