Bridalveil Falls

Bridalveil FallsBridalveil Falls is a beautiful waterfall that slides down the face of the cliffs along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.  The falls are located about one half mile east of Miners Castle.  They are best viewed from the water by kayak rental or using Pictured Rocks cruises, however they can also be seen from a distance at Miners Castle.  During the summer and fall months Bridalveil Falls reduces its flow to a small trickle.  If you want to see the falls with more water, make sure to visit in the spring time.

The cliffs around Bridalveil Falls are both majestic and gorgeous.  They rise about 160 feet out of the water and are covered with the famous mineral deposits that give Picture Rocks its name.  As you can see in the photo above, the falls slide down the entire length of the cliffs until it reaches Lake Superior below.  You can also visit the top of the falls by hiking the North Country Trail.  The trail runs along the top of the cliffs, however, so the view of the falls is obscured from this vantage point.
