You have to park on one side of the road and cross the highway to view the falls. They are very pretty and a good photo op. Just be really cognizant of the traffic as you cross.

Definitely worth a stop and a photo opportunity. There is a nice platform to take pictures on or, for the more adventurous, you can head through the creek and stand at the falls.

We found this waterfall by accident. We were driving around, exploring the area and came up on it. Definitely a great waterfall. There were people all over the place. Parking was tricky but there was plenty.

My Husband and I had a lovely drive to see the Bridal Veil Falls. It is a lovely place to visit. It is free to drive into the park.

Lovely observation deck plus trails give many opportunities for viewing the falls. Some information is provided at the site about the historical value of the site. Kids can clamber on the rocks and in the stream below.

Good view from boardwalk platform- appropriate parking and may be a bit busy as you cross the roadway but most people are courteous. Good for wheelchair or stroller access from our view

Nice and easy to get to. This year seems to be bigger than normal. Watch for cross traffic when parking.

I'm sorry, I really don't know that answer as I wasn't aware of any animals in the area... I was just basking in the upward beauty of the falls and taking many pictures of it...
