We got there around 5:30 pm and the crowd had thinned out. The sun was in a right position to make a huge beautiful rainbow.

If you like catching waterfalls, this is a great stopping point. The trail was least crowded of most the hikes, and the hike is simple and quick.

Stopped here on our way out of the valley for a quick peek. Lovely tall falls with plenty of water coming down. Paved but steep at the end.

The Yosemite valley is beautiful,and these falls are vast.....it is well worth the short trekfrom the car park to the base of them and immersing youself in the spray...take a picnic and literally soak up the atmosphere!

Hi Please ask on the TripAdvisor travel forum for Yosemite. Bridalveil Fall is a very short walk from the parking area. Peak flow is usually late May or early June. I don't know what "trek" means to you. When you... More
