Yosemite Winter! <BR>Bridalveil Fall in the winter months is a cold frozen landscape. Thin sheets of almost frozen water freefall over the top of the fall for over 600 feet. <BR>Not much sunshine is on this side of the valley in the winter months so things stay cold and frozen. Caution is required on the trail to the bottom of the fall as it can be very, very icy!

February 12, 2018 - Yosemite National Park announces the release of the Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment (Bridalveil Fall EA). The public comment period for the Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment  is currently open and  will be open until March 14, 2018. Yosemite National Park initiated public scoping and tribal and agency consultation for this project in spring 2017.

The Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment describes and analyzes two action alternatives to improve visitor services and facilities located near Bridalveil Fall. The preferred alternative (Alternative 3) would:

  • ·Replace vault toilets with flush toilets at the Bridalveil Fall Parking Area
  • ·Construct a new accessible loop trail from the Bridalveil Fall Parking Area to a viewing platform.
  • ·Enhance the Bridalveil Fall Parking Area within its existing footprint to improve safety and reduce traffic congestion.
  • ·Expand the existing viewing platform for Bridalveil Fall
  • ·Improve safety and traffic congestion along Bridalveil Straight along Southside Drive.

Yosemite is hosting a public meeting in Mariposa, California on February 28, 2018 to provide an opportunity for members of the public to learn more about the Bridalveil Fall EA, interact with park staff, and ask questions about the project. This meeting will take place from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Mariposa County Government Center in the Board Chambers.

On Thursday, March 1, 2018, Yosemite National Park will host a public webinar about the Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation project from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. To view the webinar, visit: https://yose.webex.com.
