Bridalveil Fall

Bridalveil Fall Professional Review and Guide

"Drive into the Yosemite Valley proper, and Bridalveil is the first fall you’ll see, spilling over the shadowy cliff wall nearly opposite El Capitan. While many visitors simply stop alongside the road to view the waterfall, a short paved trail leads closer to its base.

When Bridalveil Fall is fully charged, its spray washes over viewers gathered on the tiered platforms at trail’s end. Expect to jostle with fellow hikers for the best camera angles during late spring and early summer, when the valley begins to clog with seasonal tourists. But regardless of whether the overlook is teeming or empty, the up-close views of the fall, the roar of its descent, and the thrill of its proximity will satisfy any waterfall aficionado."
