Water Source

Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite National Park is a 617 foot tall waterfall that flows year-round. The Bridalveil Falls Trail is a highly-trafficked 0.9 mile out-and-back hike and is an easy and accessible for anyone visiting Yosemite. Bridalveil Falls is one of the first sights upon entering Yosemite Valley on Southside Drive is well worth the visit. Bridalveil Falls is the result of ancient glaciers that carved out valleys high above Yosemite Valley, thus creating Bridalveil Creek, which spills down as Bridalveil Falls.

Parking can be found anywhere along Southside Drive in Yosemite Valley and the trail is mostly flat.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
