Description

Yosemite National Park is one of the nation’s most beloved natural spaces. With majestic granite peaks, deep valleys, waterfalls, and ancient sequoias, this park is unrivaled in beauty. The bad news is that pets are severely limited as to where they can go in the park. The good news is there are a few dog friendly trails. Bridalveil Fall Trail just happens to be one of them.

This is a short trail, clocking in at a half mile round trip. Your pup won’t necessarily get a great workout, but they will get puptacular views of the waterfall. Follow the trail to the viewing platform and behold the magnificent falls! While it pales in comparison to Yosemite Falls, this 620 foot waterfall is rather impressive. The refreshing mist will cool your pup right off. If you can, schedule your visit during the spring. Due to snow melt, this is the waterfall’s peak season, so the waters will be roaring. Those who visit at this time should be prepared to get wet since the mist becomes more of a shower.

There is a large barking lot at the trailhead. Since this is one of the most prolific and easy to access waterfalls in the park, it is very pupular. In fact, most tour buses stop here. So you may not be able to find a parking spot. If you need to, drive further east on Southside Drive into Yosemite Valley and park on the road. There is another trailhead to the falls in this area, but since dogs must stay on the paved surfaces in the park, you’ll have to walk on the road up to the trailhead.

Primitive restrooms are available in the parking lot, but there is no drinking water. Although the trail is short, be sure to have some water on hand for your pup. Don’t forget to carry clean up bags and pick up after your pal. This trail will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!
