Great, quick paved trail for the whole family. The trail is easy for children and can be done by most. Near the trailhead there is a fish pond where children can feed the fish. This is located on the Provo River Trail so you need to look out for bikers or long boarders flying by. Bridal Veil Falls is a 607 foot double cataract waterfall. There used to be a tram located near the trailhead that took people up to a restaurant located on the cliffs above the falls. Avalanches have destroyed the tram and it has since been out of operation since 1996 and a fire burned down most of the restaurant and many surrounding trees in 2008.
The hike is more of a paved walking trail, but wonderful picnic and views of the falls. Did not hike up the falls which would increase difficulty for sure. Kids were riding scooters which I thought was great idea if you have little ones. Very scenic.
I wouldn't call this a hike. You walk through a park that approaches the falls. You can climb up the steep rocks to get closer to the falls but it's hard and underwhelming. Still a must see if you are living/visiting Utah.
Just a quick stopover to look at the beautiful bridal veil falls and snap a photo! It's very accessible to those who just want to see it.
Our whole family did this hike a few weeks ago. It was more of a walk than a hike. It's paved the whole way to the falls which are right up close to the trail. It was extremely busy with people, dogs, bikers, and even skateboarders. Watch your little ones on the trail, we had several bikes zoom down the trail that could have easily ran down our kids if we had not pulled them to the side. Overall it was a nice easy hike with some pretty views.
It was great for a family stroll but is not really a hike. You can take the stroller as it is paved. The waterfall is pretty. It has been crowded every time I have been but it is a good place for kids to get their wiggles out.
Good, but not exciting. Don't bring Scouts or expect a challenge.
Nice paved trail for a stroller. Gets you right up to the foot of the falls. Very popular hike, parking can be hard to find.
Very scenic and offers various levels of difficulty depending on if you stay on the beaten path or the more adventurous trails. Worth the climb.
Great shaded easy walk.
This is a cool place if you know what you're going for. You're going because you want to walk and talk, and maybe take young kids and your small dog. I found it was hard to wrangle adolescent kids here because it was too boring for them, though. Cool falls. Grandmas and girlfriends love them. (I do too.)
