Along this trail, laced with wildflowers in spring, a stream emerges from the mountainside, cascades delicately, and drops into a dramatic limestone pit. Since the Bridal Veil Falls Trail is on the university domain, public access could be limited or even eliminated at any time in the future. At this writing, the trail may be used by the public for day use only. Descend below the bluff on a path that has running water in wet weather and watch for a waterfall up to the right after recent rains. Passing through scattered boulders, the trail levels out in a forest of mixed hardwoods and then descends to a junction at 0.8 mile. The loop trail follows an old road north, to the right, but before heading that way, turn left for the easier descent to the waterfall or keep straight for the more difficult descent.

Nice little hike with many smaller falls along the way. You do have to keep your eyes open for Bridal Veil because you are off the main trial to get to it. When you come to the bridge you will hear it just follow the side of the stream around the corner.
