Summary: Bridal Veil Falls is a seasonal 45' plunge falls. You can see this falls without leaving your car. In fact, you can drive behind it.

Bridal Veil Falls is a roadside falls along side Highway 64. What makes this waterfall special is that you can actually drive behind it. A little spur road branches off from the highway, goes behind the falls, and then rejoins the highway. There is a small parking area in case you want to get out and see the falls on foot.

The bit of road that goes behind the falls used to be part of the highway, but they rerouted it many years ago.

The waterflow varies a lot, and the falls can nearly dry up in summer. They were pretty thin when I saw them in June.
