Hike Less Than A Mile To This Spectacular Waterfall Overhang In Iowa

Bridal Veil Falls in Pikes Peak State Park might not be Iowa’s biggest waterfall, but it’s still a stunning spot well worth a short, moderate-level hike along a well-built boardwalk. With its delicate, multi-stranded cascade trickling down over a massive, ringed overhang, this natural feature truly is one of Iowa’s many hidden treasures.
