Stunning views but the car traffic on the road (aka hiking path) was really distracting. Tons of cars even on a Wednesday mid-morning. I will drive to the top then hike from the falls to the lakes next time.

Great 1st day hike if you're a flatlander like me. Gives you a chance to acclimate to the altitude and get your climbing legs under you before you tackle some of the harder trails if that's what you plan to do. About 2.5 miles going up. Views are worth the effort.

Hiking on a gravel road (4WD cars only). There's plenty of parking spots in the morning. I hiked from the town so it was 7.2 miles. A great and easy hike. If you want to continue, you can hike to Blue Lakes.

Just a hike up a 4WD road - scenes of telluride the entire way up and the falls are really pretty. You can actually drive up to the top of the falls if you want to avoid the hike.

Ton of car traffic and hikers later in the day... be sure to get an early start.

Trail is a road. Beautiful view of the falls and back down to the valley. Apparently you can hike on to Blue Lake, but not marked

Really enjoyed this hike up to the top of bridal veil falls. Lush greenery, wildflowers, and amazing views of the falls and the valley with Telluride down below framed perfectly by the mountains and green hillsides. The reason for 4 stars is this whole hike is on a dirt/rocky road which was pretty busy with lots of cars on our way up but super quiet on the way down so depends on time of day I guess but you may be getting some car fumes at times. The falls are beautiful from bottom to top. If you're going to do only one of the in-town waterfall hikes of telluride I'd say hike to bear creek falls which is epic and drive up to bridal veil falls but both hikes are great.
