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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
