Bridalveil Fall Description
Another easy, kid-friendly hike is the 1/2 mile round trip walk to Bridalveil Fall. Since the water flows year round, there's no danger that you'll get to the viewing point only to be disappointed (though the flow will be faster and more dramatic in spring and early summer). The paved trail that goes up to the viewing area from the parking lot has a slight incline but is stroller-friendly.
Babies: Babies in backpacks and strollers will do fine on this short outing; just keep a safe distance from the falls so as not to get wet.
Toddlers & Pre-K: It's a flat, short walk so even relatively young toddlers should be able to make it to the falls and back.
School-Age Kids: They'll find the walk easy and won't be disappointed with the view.
- Be prepared to get wet! In high winds, spray has been known to drench onlookers.
