Bridalveil Falls Yosemite National Park


Bridalveil Falls

Bridalveil Fall (620 feet)
Flows: all year, with peak flow in May.

This is often the first waterfall visitors see when entering Yosemite Valley. In spring, it thunders; during the rest of the year, look for its characteristic light, swaying flow.

You can see Bridalveil Fall from near the tunnels on the Wawona Road (Highway 41) or Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120) and from a signed parking lot on your way into Yosemite Valley. You can walk to the base via a short but steep (up to 24% slope) trail in just a few minutes.

  1. Unbelievable how beautiful that is, I’m embarrassed to admit that I lived in Stockton for two years and never realized I was less than 3 hours away. I’m sure I would have visited it frequently. Oh well, maybe we’ll do a camping trip one day.


    • My husband & I spent roughly 7-10 days, always feeling there was so much more to see. I’ve changed after taking care of grandparents while dying. Several years of figuring out my heart problems and now Chronic Lyme. I’m not complaining, God has given much more that I deserved at times. I’m having difficulties writing, my whole body is in rejects me. I can work my photos which are not as difficult as writing. I have a series on Yosemite Park, around 500 photos. I’m including info about the waterfalls and trail of the ones I’ve done. The funked up waterfall on my About me page is Verna Falls. I love getting crazy with photos as well. You might leave with an immediate desire to return. This photo is really a bad photo by I can’r write and cry. A photo was easier.
      Go while you can, it take stamina for the simple to moderate trails. Thanks for the feedback.
