Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Serene Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Roaring out of beautiful Lake Serene above and falling more than 1,000 vertical feet across five sections, Bridal Veil Falls may be one of Washington’s most dramatic cascades. It’s so big that it’s hard to take it all in—indeed only two of the five sections are viewable from the trail.
Nevertheless, hikers interested in bathing in its glory will do just that as the falls’ abundant spray is hard to avoid—and is usually a welcome relief after the switchback- laden hike up from the trailhead."
--Roddy Scheer with Adam Sawyer, Hiking Waterfalls in Washington (Falcon Guides).
"A beautiful waterfall flows out of Lake Serene above and cascades below the rugged east wall of Mount Index at the end of a safe, newly constructed trail, No. 1068, on the east side of Bridal Veil Creek. Take time to see and enjoy a stunning view of Bridal Veil Falls and climb flights of steps paralleling the falls.
Children will be fascinated as they stand directly beside the water and look up a 100-foot rock face to see the streams of water that make up the bridal veil pouring beside them. An old nearby mine, the Honeymoon Mine, brought the original nineteenth-century travelers to the Lake Serene area."
