This Unbelievable Utah Waterfall Is Hiding In Plain Sight… No Hiking Required
Sometimes seeing Utah’s beauty requires a little hiking; other times it’s right at the side of the road! Such is the case with Bridal Veils Falls, an enormous 607-foot-tall waterfall in Provo Canyon.
Bridal Veil Falls flows year-round. It’s a double-cascade waterfall that typically has a lot of water flowing and spreading out from its origination point at the top. It’s so pretty that it’s often noted as one of the 100 most beautiful falls in the country.
You’ll have a clear view of the falls right from the parking lot.
Or, get a little closer to enjoy the cool mist of the falls.
You can even wade in the river (wear some water shoes...it’s rocky!).
This view from above the falls shows the parking lot, paved walkway and river below.
If you’d like to get up-close to the falls, you can hike up a bit. Be prepared to get wet, and be careful...it’s slippery!
Feed the fish in the river! There are fish food machines right off the paved parkway.
A short stroll down the parkway takes you to Bridal Veil Falls Park.
Bridal Veil Falls Park is about 3 acres and sits right next to the Provo River . You’ll find eight picnic tables and many mature trees that provide a nice, shady spot for a picnic lunch.
