Get an up-close look at a natural waterfall at Bridal Veil Falls, set just off of the highway in a national forest. Pay a visit to the 14 m (45 ft) tall waterfall by pulling into the roadway at its base, from where you can admire the cascade as it tumbles down the hills and rock faces above you. Take a unique journey by driving or walking underneath the falls themselves, as the roadway and visitor path curve behind the water and are partially protected by a recess in the rock. Keep in mind that though you can generally pass through and remain dry, the waterfall can still get you soaked if the stream is high.

  • A really cool waterfall with a road that goes behind it makes for a great car enthusiast attraction.
  • Great waterfall for all. No hiking see it from your car. Better after it rains, sometimes very little water.
  • As waterfalls go this one is kind of meh. Dry Falls, just west of here, is much more of an amazing experience.
  • Unfortunately the public is no longer able to drive behind it, but it is easy to get to and still a wonderful sight.
  • Beautiful area. Several water falls close together along the drive!
