Owner description: Landmark waterfall located in Yosemite.
Reviewed 21 January 2018

Bridalveil Fall is one of the most prominent waterfalls in the Yosemite Valley in California, seen yearly by millions of visitors to Yosemite National Park.[1] The waterfall is 188 metres (617 ft) in height and flows year round.[2]

The Ahwahneechee tribe believed that Bridalveil Fall was home to a vengeful spirit named Pohono who guarded the entrance to the valley and that those leaving the valley must not look directly into the waterfall lest they be cursed. They also believed that inhaling the mist of Bridalveil Fall would improve one's chances of marriage.

There is a trail that takes you to the base of the falls. The trail is pretty short but it is uphill. Be prepared for a lot of mist!

This is a short hike along a paved path that takes you to the base of the falls. It is always enjoyable to take this short hike to see the falls and enjoy the sights along the creek that it forms. During the winter you may be able to hear the ice crack and fall during the day as it thaws. Keep your eyes open and look around the woods. I often see wildlife in the area.

I suggest going off season, or at least, mid-week. Otherwise, a parking lot. The falls are an easy 5 minute paved walk from the parking lot. Once you reach the viewing area, large boulders and cold water await the thrill-seekers. We navigated the rocks and climbed to the top, to see the best view at the base of the falls, which was exhilarating. Be careful. There are many warnings about tourists being injured/killed climbing these rocks. Saw many tourists taking a quick tumble down the rocks into the shallow but cold water. The rocks are quite slippery so, wear boots or rugged footwear. I would still do it, again. :)
