Great, quick paved trail for the whole family. The trail is easy for children and can be done by most. The first part of the trail is flat and paved. The last portion up to the falls is more difficult with wet and loose rocks. Near the trailhead there is a fish pond where children can feed the fish. This is located on the Provo River Trail so watch out for bikers. 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. In 2008 a fire burned down most of the restaurant and many surrounding trees.

Trail almost completely covered in ice right now so it is a little hard to navigate.

Very pretty during the fall with some great views. The trail gets a little rocky and loose but overall it was fun and short.

This was an amazing hike. My 4 & 6 year old even hiked straight up the waterfall to the pool where the main fall lands. Incredible views, very fun, and did this while holding my 2 year old in an ergo. *I wouldn't recommend everyone attempt that, but I feel pretty confident in my hiking abilities.

My brother-in-law did the same with his and there 3 & 5 year old did great too.

The pave path most of the way makes this a much less strenuous hike until you get to the trail. There are many rough trails up marked by trail signs. I took the most eastern (up canyon) trail near the picnic table. It seems to be the best trail from what I saw

beautiful falls and shaded paved trail to the base of the falls. just pass the falls there is a bridge to the left with port-a-potties..to the right of the bridge is the safest way up the falls. it is dirt narrow trail that then turns to gravel and rock. Very narrow all the way up but not strenuous. Just nerve wracking that you could slip! We took our 12 yr kld daughter and I was so afraid she would slip. people were carrying babies and toddlers and i think they were nuts!! once to the falls it ia gorgeous and fun!

July 2018 - The trail is in two parts, there is the paved trail along the bottom caynon next to Provo River. Well maintained as part of the Provo river trail, many parking lots, and food trucks. The trail to go up the to the mid-point of the falls is pretty skech in places. Very narrow in many parts, and loose shale rock everywhere. There are a few places where the the trail has clearly been wiped out by rock slides and is a little puckering for the less then fleet of footed. There is also another option to get to the mid-point, climb the falls themselves, lots of loose shale rock, water, and steep.

My 8 year old son loved climbing through the waterfall to the upper falls. I thought this hike would be too crowded to be much fun, but it was actually pretty awesome despite all the people at the bottom.

Easy getting to the falls. A little more difficult if you climb up the face of the falls to where the water is coming off the mountain, but still doable. great adventure for kids!

Not too bad for a first walk in UT.
Traveled the route and ended up a steep rocky area (too steep for me for as of now).
You can continue walking (paved path), it’s just surrounded by trees and a river on the right for maybe 3 more miles.

This is a lovely trail. Show up before nine - it gets busy. The easiest way up to the falls is after the sign with "this is the right trail" written in sharpie. Walk a little further down the paved path and you'll find the less rocky/slippery trail.
The waterfall is gorgeous, surrounded by stair rocks that are relatively easy to climb. Had two pre-teens with us, and saw a few younger children on the trail with their grandparents.

Short, sweet and family-friendly with great views! There wasnt much of a crowd from 9-10 am when I was hiked it in July.

Easy paved trail along the Provo River but the waterfall at the end of the trail is worth the hike. Be prepared for a busy trail though

This was our first hike in Utah. We just moved here from New Jersey and this trail was a warm welcome to Utah. It was perfect for my 11 ya old daughter who made it to the top. My 9yr sold loved it too. Definitely bring some shoes for both hiking and water play for the kids. They had a ton of fun. Definitely will go back.

You can park just on the other side of the river from the waterfall if you want to shorten this trail.

Great falls. You can hang out at the bottom or hike part of the way up. I think this is a great Sunday pit stop after being on the road a long time. Not really a hike even if you do go part way. Maybe good for a date with a girl who doesn't like to get her shoes dirty but wants the social media attention.

Very pretty but often super crowded. Great little adventure for young families as it is short, sweet, and the “reward” is almost instantaneous thanks to the large waterfall at the end :)

Definitely not 1.3 out and back. More like .5 out and back.

This trail follows the Provo River Parkway Trail. It was so quick to The Falls, we actually kept walking thinking you can get closer to it. We turned back and spent time in the pool area at the bottom. The water was shallow in some parts at the bottom, so my not so loving water baby could walk on the rocks, but not get too wet.

Nice for a fun cool off time during the summer, but really easy so it was packed with people.

Would do it again!

This is a great trail, I was surprised how easy and quick it was to see the waterfall! It’s a pretty waterfall but there is definitely crowding in front of the waterfall but other then that the trail was mostly cleared!

This is a hiking trail if you just find it! You have to park and walk the paved park first until you see the falls to your right. Keep going past them and across the bridge, and there’s a steep dirt trail (not marked) to your right that will lead you to the falls. Very pretty!

The easiest n most beautiful waterfall. I had so much fun with my boyfriend.

Gorgeous water fall, but rather short hike on paved trail. Great for families with small kids. There is a small trail just past the bridge which leads up to the mid part of falls.

Lovely waterfall. Great hike to do with parents, grandparents, or little kids. Wish it wasn’t so close to such a busy road
