    Bridalveil Fall veils the rocks over which it falls 620 feet
    Flows: all year, with peak flow in May. In spring, it thunders; during the rest of the year, look for its characteristic light, swaying flow. Bridalveil Fall is visible near the tunnels on the Wawona Road (Highway 41) or Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120) and from a signed parking lot on your way into Yosemite Valley... and you can walk to the base in just a few minutes.
  • El Capitan

    El Capitan, rising over 3,000 feet above the floor of Yosemite Valley, is opposite Bridalveil Fall and is best seen from the roads in western Yosemite Valley, including Tunnel View, Bridalveil Fall area, and El Capitan Meadow.

    Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California, 95389
