This is a very easy hike for all fitness levels. The falls are beautiful. It is so easy that it is often quite crowded. Paved and smooth.

This has been one of our family's favorite hikes. we hiked to the base of the falls. Our children range in age from 8 to 17. We also brought our two dogs with us. We brought some friends on this hike one of which has special needs. It was perfect!

Crowded unless you go during the week.

Bridal Veil Falls has a bit of everything for everyone. Expect crowds at all times at the base of the falls on the Provo River Parkway. If you come to do mild hiking, you can get up close to the lowest tier of the falls where there are shallow pools. If you feel somewhat adventurous, you can continue to the middle portion between the upper and lower tiers, although there are signs posted saying you are not supposed to. Its a little hairy but you can go out right to the edge to the falls. If you are a very experienced mountaineer you can go past up above the falls, but I would generally dissuade anyone from attempting this; multiple people have died attempting to get above the falls.

Easy and fun for the whole family, short walk for the car park and you're at the foot off the water fall. Nice little area to feed the fishes and short hike to nearby park for a picnic.

Easiest hike I've ever been on. We decided to make a little more challenging so we headed up the rocks to the actual falls and then hiked west along the mountain. Found some much more challenging stuff and some good places to set up for rock climbing. Really fun and probably headed back next week.

The waterfall is impressive, but the "trail" isn't much to brag about. Its a paved path. Trailhead is clearly marked and only takes a few minutes. There's an overlook a few hundred feet further up the highway that gives you the same look of the falls, so the main reason to do this "hike" is to either get down to the water or to do the trail up the falls.

This trail was super easy, we had a 4 year old with us on our hike and he was able to do it no problem! He didn't cross the falls, but other than that he could to it all! The falls were gorgeous and the cool mist was nice after the hike. We accidentally parked in the Viewing Area lot and had to walk down a trail to get to the lower area to start our hike, and I honestly would reccommend this! The area we walked through was full of greenery and so beautiful.

Too crowded and not as exciting of a destination as people make it out to be.
