Bridal Veil Falls Trail
The Bridal Veils Falls Trail is a heavily trafficked out-and-back route in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest that is rated as moderate. This pretty hike is quite mellow for the first half but picks up in elevation gain through the second half, making the flowing waters of the falls a welcome endpoint. You can rest at the falls or choose to go on a bit further to Lake Serene, which is serene indeed.
This hike is best done in late spring when the water flow is at its most impressive.

Route Description for Bridal Veil Falls Trail
Bridal Veil Falls is a gorgeous hike, taking you through the forest to a wide flowing waterfall underneath Lake Serene. The lake is a great extension if you’re feeling up to it, but either way, you’ll enjoy this outing.
We recommend visiting in the spring, as the falls can dry up to a trickle in the hot summer months.
The hike begins from the parking area, following Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Serene Trail roughly south. The first half or so of the hike is quite mellow, but the elevation does pick up towards the end. As you approach the falls, the trail splits. Going left takes you to Lake Serene, and going right takes you to the falls.
Enjoy the cool mist and the rushing water before either retracing your steps or returning to the junction to head up to the lake. There is a bridge with pretty falls views en route to Lake Serene.
