Bridal Veil Falls Trail ~ August 11th 2011

If you want to get up close and personal with a waterfall, Bridal Veil Falls is the place to be! It's about 5 miles round trip with 800 feet of elevation gain. The trail is not too challenging with the exception of several groupings of stairs on the last portion of the trail. The good thing is that when you reach the stairs, you know you are almost there! We encountered several other groups along our hike on a partly cloudy, not too warm day. The trail was in great shape, with very little mud.

This is another very popular trail and I would recommend trying to hike it on a weekday if possible. The views on the way up are beautiful.
