Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite Valley
Yosemite National Park, California

Bridalveil Fall is 617 feet (188 m) high and leaps from the top of a vertical cliff, a classic example of a hanging valley. It can be seen from all routes entering the valley, but not from points further east. A short trail leads to a platform almost at the base of the falls and another popular viewpoint is along Southside Drive.

Bridalveil Meadow, west of the falls, was the campsite for President Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir in 1903. Ribbon Falls, highest in Yosemite, is opposite Bridalveil on the north side of the valley, but dries up in early summer.
