In Yosemite valley, we saw the beautiful Bridalveil Fall, which is 600 feet high. Its name evokes the lightness of the spray from the waterfall when the wind blows!

The whistling water fall is a spectator's delight
Feb 2020
This was spectacular. The water was flowing through the mountain into the valley in snowy weather. The white snow flurry backdrop the water looked white from down the valley and we were struck with amazement.

Between the water no longer flowing off the falls, the incredible amount of smoke from the Creek Fire, along with the the parking area being closed due to construction, BridalVeil Falls was a complete flop for us. Something we were really excited to see, and we didn't get to experience really any of what we were hoping to.

Beautiful, but beware the smoke
Sep 2020
As of our visit on September 13th, the water is flowing and you can still hike up to the base of the falls. There's some restoration work going on in the area, but it didn't hamper us at all. The main deterrent right now is the smoke, which is off and on going from a little foggy to nightfall at noon.
I can't wait to go back someday without the fires hampering views.

THE WATER IS FALLING AT BRIDALVEIL EARLY AUGUST
Aug 2020
We visited the first week of August 2020. This time of year, getting to see any water falling is hit and miss (mostly miss). However, we discovered that in the "valley", this waterfall was still flowing. August is the summer time and usually Yosemite Falls and others are bone dry, especially with recent drought years. Bridalveil, fortunately has a different water source and here you can enjoy the view.

Normally, one can walk a short distance and get a closer view. During our visit, this was hampered by "restoration work". So, you couldn't walk further or closer than a short distance. Still, it's a nice view if you walk as close as you can. It's just off the valley road.

Beautiful Waterfall !
Aug 2020 • Family
A beautiful waterfall! Catch it in the right light and it can look like a firefall. It is a short and easy hike to the viewing area. The fall is very beautiful and you will probably get hit with the spray and mist of it. This is especially nice on a hot day. Beware: don’t go beyond the railings. Many have been injured and a couple even killed climbing over the rocks( wet polished granite with moss). It is perfectly safe and enjoyable from the viewing area. Unfortunately this year (2020) the parking lot and trail are closed. The fall can be seen from the road or at other points in the valley.

Beautiful Falls

Do to Covid, the trail up to the falls was closed. However we still had a wonderful view from further down the trail where it was open to hike.
Definitely not want to miss!

reachable fall
Jun 2019
the trail to this fall is not difficult, most people even young kids can do it, so we can reach the bridalveil falls. when you walk close to it, you will certainly get wet, and your camera as well, so be careful for the water make your camera too wet, and leafing to malfunction. In the trail, there are some point, you can view the fall, take pictures with it and without being get wet, but there is no sign of it, so you have to keep an eye to search for good spot to have fall's view to take picture. There is parking at the trail head, and the shuttle bus didn't have stop here, so better drive your car or ride on a bike, of course you can also hike to this point. if you don't want to walk the trail, you can also view this fall in the "Tunnel view"
