“A pleasant route leading to Bridal Wreath Falls.”— Yanko Limón
Family Friendly Though the full route is a bit long for younger kids, older kids will enjoy the chance to see the waterfall at the end of this route!
After about 2.5 miles on the Douglas Springs Trail, turn right onto the Bridal Wreath Falls Trail. This trail is short and sweet, bringing visitors up the last 1/4 mile or so to the actual falls. You'll continue to climb, but at a gentler rate than on the Douglas Springs Trail. The last hundred yards takes you through a wash with stones and boulders that you have to navigate around, so use appropriate caution here.
The waterfall is about 25 ft tall and has a small pool at the base, a striking feature in the desert! Take your time to enjoy the water, and to cool off from your ascent. Once you've had your fill, return the way that you came, and descend back to the parking area.
