Taking the trail up through the trees was a little steep and slippery from the snowmelt but we took it slow and were so glad we did! Along the way we saw some gorgeous waterfalls which made the climb up the trail worth it. Chose the 4x4 road for the return to the parking lot.

Lovely hike! Started at 8am and took the trail up and the road back down. Saw a lot more people once we got back to the parking lot around 10am. Trail is damp and a little muddy, road was more dry.

Beautiful views both ways. Followed the bridal veil fall signs that are on the trail rather that the all trails map. Got us to the base of the falls and it was a great hike. About 3 hours with 45 minutes spend hiking around to see different sides of the water fall.

Trail is a little more than moderate, steep but fun! Come early for parking or you have to park at the bottom and walk up another .3ish mi to the trail head. Views are beautiful! It started snowing when we got to the top and then heavier as we came down, was so fun and gorgeous!!

This is not the easy, OHV Trail, they are switched in All Trails. This is the moderate, more difficult trail

Beautiful hike with sounds of the falls/river all the way up. Climbing through rocks, up and down.

We drove up in a 4X4 and parked a little up the road by a gate. Then we walked up the road to the falls. SOO PRETTY! we decided to take the trail back rather than the road. Once you get to the falls, I suggest climbing as close as you can until you see the little pool at the bottom. Overall gorgeous views the entire way!

We took trail up and then returned on the road. The AllTrails route is all on the road. The trail is nicer and stops by the base of two waterfalls. Trails is in trees and good on a hot day. The road passes another waterfall and isn’t as steep. Ie easier on the knees coming down

Amazing trail and even more beautiful waterfalls. Make sure to stop at the lower falls for an icy dip.

Classic Telluride hike! We went slow with my two kids and took a nice break at the first waterfall about 45 min into the hike. Water is so low in Bridal Veil Falls that we were able to hike all the way to sit next to the falls and see the pool below. Beautiful and highly rewarding at the end of a dusty climb.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Great shirt hike to falls! Pretty steep incline the first third of the hike. Gets your heart pumping! Hiking shoes a must. Wear your bathing suit underneath hiking clothes and jump in at the falls. It will definitely cool you off. Most wore masks and were properly socially distanced - which was a concern of mine. Good short hike.

Trail was great! A little steep but well worth the hike. The App gives directions to go on the road but we took the trail.

Great hike! Although the trail marked on AllTrails is the 4 wheeler road up, the actual bridal veil falls hiking trail is a bit shorter (1.1 mi), is single track, and ends at the base of the falls. From there you can walk the 4 wheeler road the rest of the way up (1 mile).

I'm not crazy about this trail because the two times I've been (July and August) it was super busy. Also, you don't get the kind of sweeping views you might see on other hikes around town. However, the three waterfalls are delightful!
