Restoration of Bridalveil Fall
Plunging 620 feet down a granite cliff, Bridalveil Fall offers visitors the first chance to experience one of the park’s iconic waterfalls as they enter Yosemite Valley. Long before the 1864 Yosemite Grant Act set the Valley aside as protected public land, Yosemite residents and visitors marveled at the beauty and strength of the fall. The restoration project for Bridalveil Fall will focus on enhancing the visitor experience and protecting the surrounding habitat. A public process and a shared vision for the area will inform the design development.
