A 0.4 miles hike gets you to the viewing area. Again ice was falling and plummeting into the pool. The noise is incredible. I’d imagine when the snow melts the roar must be huge. The snow was thick on the ground but fine with sturdy...More

The Bridal Veil Falls in Yosemite National Park is something to behold. The tall waterfall changes the downward flow as if it were dancing with the winds at high altitude. Pity the viewing gallery is so small and the visitor numbers in heavy flow.

This is one of the few Falls that flows in October & well worth the 1000ft elevation hike up the hill to see it

Nice view of the falls and not too far if a walk from the parking lot Yosemite National Park provided Lots of hiking/walking and easy walk for all in the group. Not too strenuous at all but lots of walking and outstanding scenery

Our first stop in Yosemite. A fairly easy walk to the falls, which even in fall are pretty impressive. In spring they must be fantastic.

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.
