Arriving to the top is the most satisfying views you can get for an adrenaline junkie. I absolutely loved this hike. It was moderately easy and fun to do. Amazing scenery along the way. Great for families, friends, and pets who's down for an adventure. The path ways are clear and visible to see. Beautiful hike. One of my favorites.

Beautiful day for a hike. We brought our dog this afternoon and took our time, definitely enjoyed the views. The path was well-maintained, totally clear of any snow, and was relatively dry. The falls were absolutely beautiful. We made sure to sit at the top while the sun set—so quiet and peaceful. We got a late start so we didn’t get to see Lake Serene, but we’ll be back soon to give that trail a try.

If significant rain is forecasted for the area, consider doing this hike on another day, particularly if you aren't wearing appropriate rain gear (water proof hiking boots and gaiters). By mid afternoon on this very rainy day, prior easily crossable streams on the trail became much wider. One stream reached a depth of 8-10 inches and at least 10 feet across with rushing water, which made it impossible to cross without fully immersing your boots. Hiking poles would have been helpful to improve stability while crossing this stream. We look forward to coming back to try the hike again in more cooperative weather.

Great bang for your buck on the effort it takes to get up there vs how beautiful the falls are! You can get so close to them.

The waterfall was roaring today. Couldn't get a picture from the lower viewing area because one would get soaked in a short time from all the water spray, it was that intense.

Great hike and fun trail. Very easy for the first part until the last 0.5 miles which was all up. Well worth it and easy to bough for my 4 and 6 year olds.

NOTE: Bridal Veil & Lake Serene trails are closing to the public Oct. 31, 2017-June, 2018 for "logging activity." I've hiked to the falls twice, both times an enjoyable moderate hike. What it lacks in wide open vista views it makes up for in getting up close and personal with the dramatic waterfall. If you are only doing the Bridal Veil hike, make sure to also walk down the Lake Serene trail less than 1/4 mile, which leads you to a lower falls viewing area to explore.

I always visit the falls on the way down from Lake Serene. They're lovely and worth the detour, even with tired legs. Can be crowded.

beautiful scenery and while the hike up to the fall gets steep and difficult near the end, the waterfall makes it so so so worth it!!

This trail starts of easy, then the last .5 mile is really hard. Definitely not a "beginner" trail. The falls are beautiful, very wispy this time of year. It will be fun to come back in the spring, I'll probably get soaked!
