For viewing this fall, approximately at a height of 1000', tourists don't have to climb. It can be easily viewed even from the parking lot. During my visit in November there was not enough water. It is one of the favourite spots in Yosemite National...More

We came to Yosemite National Park at the end of October and knew it wouldn't be the best time for park waterfalls. But the fall color and fewer crowds made it the perfect time. We weren't sure whether any of the falls would be flowing...More

In November and most of the winter many of the famous falls in Yosemite become just a trickle. They are magnificent in the spring and summer from the snow melt. Bridalveil Falls is one that still has enough falls and mist to make it beautiful...More

This is one of the few Falls that flows in October & well worth the 1000ft elevation hike up the hill to see it

Nice view of the falls and not too far if a walk from the parking lot Yosemite National Park provided Lots of hiking/walking and easy walk for all in the group. Not too strenuous at all but lots of walking and outstanding scenery

Our first stop in Yosemite. A fairly easy walk to the falls, which even in fall are pretty impressive. In spring they must be fantastic.

Impressive even during the fall and especially so on a rainy, windy day. Would love to see it in the spring.

It was just easy walk from parking lot. Although dry season started but there was still water. It is fun to see water blown to right and left by the wind.

We visited the park in early October, thinking that the park might not be too crowded. But the Bridalveil Falls parking area was jammed--maybe because it's one of the first attractions you come to. However, the Falls ARE nice to look at. It's fun to...More

Yes, it should be but minimal, with the local fires it might be limited viewing or possibly closed...I would check the Yosemite official site just to be certain.
