Bridalveil Falls Day Hike
About half a mile round-trip, this trail can get crowded in summer, but it affords breathtaking views of the falls, with water spilling over 600 feet to the valley floor and looking just like a bridal veil. Beware, you may get damp from the spray. Start from and return to the Bridal Veil parking area, located about 10 miles southwest of the Visitor Center on Highway 41. There is wheelchair access with assistance. The trail may be closed during winter months, so call first.
On a hot summer day, this is the place to be. At the basin, you can just take it all in and cool off. Its well worth the small hike. It does get busy in the summer, but thats okay :) Nature at one of its best!

Perhaps I'm biased because this was the first thing we did in Yosemite park, but this hike brings you right to the base of the falls. Looking up you can see mist. Often just mist, but at times the mist was thin you could see the falls spilling over the rocks.
We saw this in late April in the morning, when the falls were gushing and the sun was almost directly above the crest. At the base, everywhere you look is a rainbow.
This hike doesn't have a lot of scenery building up to the falls, but the falls itself is spectacular.
I recommend coming in from the north side instead fo the busier parking lot.
