Waterfalls of the Blue Ridge: A Hiking Guide to the Cascades of the Blue Ridge Mountains
Bridal Veil Falls, the first waterfall on the Little River within DuPont State Forest, requires a longer hike than Hooker, Triple, and High Falls, but it is worth the trip. From the Fawn Lake Access Area, pass the yellow gate next to the information board, reach the sign marking Reasonover Creek Trail, and go right, walking under the power lines. At the marked intersection, take a left on the wide Conservation Road. You will pass a green metal gate and the Shortcut Trail on the left. Then walk parallel to an old airport runway and hangar, and finally pass Camp Summit Road, a house, and Lake Julia Road, all on the right. Take a left on Bridal Veil Falls Road, passing a barn on the left. The gravel road ends, but continue straight ahead on the 0.1-mile trail through pine trees toward the falls.
