  • Address: Bridalveil Fall, Yosemite National Park, CA, USA
One of the first waterfalls that you'll see as you enter Yosemite, Bridalveil Fall is 620 feet (188 meters) in height and flows year-round, with peak water flow occurring in May. On windy days, it looks almost like the waterfall is falling sideways.

Bridalveil Fall became one of the most photographed waterfalls in the park after Ansel Adams published his Gates of the Valley photograph, featuring Bridalveil Fall welcoming visitors to the magnificence of nature that can be found in the park. Take the short (about 20 minutes round trip), but steep, hike up to the base to see the falls close-up, but be sure to dress appropriately: you’ll encounter spray in the spring and possibly icy conditions in the winter.

Practical Info

There are a variety of locations from which you can take in spectacular views of the Fall, but to reach the car park for the hike to its base, head into the Yosemite Valley along Hwy 41. The car park is at signpost W1, which is located about 1.5 miles downhill from the Tunnel View.
