This is a great scramble down the hill-side to a gorgeous, unexplored waterfall that few people have been to.

At the parking lot for Angel's Rest, turn left uphill on to Palmer Mill Road. Drive for about a mile, and park right past a tributary stream/small waterfall (pictured above) on your left that flows through a small pipe under the road. You will see a small space to park on the right. Park here and you will see a faint trail beaten down only by foot. Start walking down the trail, and it will gradually get more difficult. You will want to keep walking and climbing down towards the creek. This short climb down will take a bit of time due to the slippery footing. Be careful where you step, or you may end up sliding down the hillside. Once you reach the creek, walk upstream, and you will see the falls! Hike back out the same way you came in. This is not a good hike for children or dogs.

Hike to Upper Bridal Veil Falls Reviews

The plants are overgrown and there are many spiders along the path. Carry a stick to wave around before stepping over the plants. Overall the hike is very pretty and the falls is beautiful and extremely quiet. Nice to get away from the crowds. The path down is very steep.

Austin gave a perfect description of how to get there. Going down the canyon was challenging. I suggest wearing gloves to protect your hands as you grab foliage to steady yourself. A breathtaking view of this fantastic waterfall is the reward.

After reading this write up about it, I decided to take a little trip there. The directions were absolutely on point, and and the waterfall was absolutely beautiful. The biggest plus for me is that there was not another soul in sight. You don't get the rush of the tourists going there, you just get solidarity and the beautiful of this large curtain waterfall. 10/10 recommend, great write up Austin!
