The route on this page is one option. There is also a loop from the north side of the river which many hikers choose to do. A permit is required to reach the gorge floor, which this route does.

The park ranger stopped us and said they were not allowing people back there without a permit to hike to this trail. He also said they have not given permits since February and they have strictly been monitoring this waterfall. Very disappointed in this app

The trail to get to the Bridal Veil Fall (sliding rock) is VERY hard. This hiking trail is not long but is very steep making and very rocky. Extra caution must be taken but it’s worth it!
