Hike the Bridal Veil Falls and Tinkers Creek Loop

Bridal Veil Falls Parking Lot

Easy access to a scenic waterfall overlook, and the opportunity to hike through a National Natural Landmark gorge.

This popular waterfall and gorge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park are linked by an easy, well-maintained trail. Both attractions are deserving sights – Bridal Veil Falls measures 15 ft tall, with multiple shale layers creating the veiled effect, while Tinkers Creek Gorge, at 896 ft deep, has plenty of overlooks and pretty scenery.

You can combine both in a day hike via the 4 mile loop trail, or simply take the 0.1 mile boardwalk to the waterfall's overlook.

A trail map is available here.

Easy Access and Great Views!

The waterfalls were a bit low thanks to the recent drought, but the views were still worth it, and the Great Falls of Tinkers Creek were still impressive even with it being a dry year. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.
