The Bridal Veil Trail leads to to bluff overlooks and the Bridal Veil Falls. Parts of it are handicap accessible with paved sidewalk and the rest is boardwalk with stairs and handrails. There are several scenic overlook areas as well as an effigy mound in the shape of a bear.

Scenic overviews of the Mississippi River to start and a boardwalk trail down to the falls and back. The boardwalk is under renovations, but there was only 1 section of it that we had to detour onto the side to get around. Very nice trail.

Great trail and fantastic views. Amazing in the fall. The stairs can get slick if it’s rainy, but worth the time to hike.

I’m gonna argue with the easy rating -those steps are rough! But a fun quick hike. Def busy

Pretty Falls, lots of stairs, short and steep, you won't be alone there.

Great river overlooks and nice wooded boardwalk down to Bridal Veil Falls and back. One of the easier hikes in the park.
