Hike to Bridal Veil Falls in Telluride
Colorado › Pandora Mill Parking
Added by Jason Hatfield
Hike to the tallest free-falling waterfall in Colorado at a stunning 365 ft in length.
Park at the Pandora Mill just east of Telluride and lace up your footwear of choice. At 1.2 miles to the base of the falls with 850 feet of gain, this can make for a great thigh burning hike or run. The trail is a gravel road that eventually passes a gate to further trails up the Bridal Veil Basin.
Photographing this falls can be extremely difficult at the base due to the heavy mist and the best angles are along the road. The power plant at the top of the falls is private and not open for visitors.
