Bridalveil Falls can be viewed from afar, the street or close by. It's very high, beautiful from wherever you see it.

It's 0.5 miles walk mostly from road and easily reach there. Feel the mist of the water. Wonderful place. Everyone loves the falls due to the accessibility. Kids will enjoy the lot.

We visited Yosemite in August 2016...beautiful time of year to visit the national park but sadly the waterfalls were pretty much non-existent, and all I saw here was a small spray, which was a bit of an anti-climax, however the trail to the falls was...More

Yosemite falls is a good walk, you can park in the little village and it's about a 30 minute walk each way. it's not too hilly and is pleasant!

Is it allowed to trek in the national park? Can we see this waterfall on foot? And what time of the year will the waterfall be strong? Because I reckon that the rainbow will appear when there is a lot of water, right?
