Bridal Veil Falls
These stunning waterfalls, at 365 feet in length, are the tallest free falling falls in Colorado, and they entice many people to hike, bike or four-wheel drive up the road.
From Pandora Mill to Bridal Veil Falls and the power plant, it is a 1.8 miles and a 1,200 foot elevation gain on a rocky road. You can also bike to the bottom of the falls and get energized in the midst of the mist.
Directions: Go east through town on Colorado Avenue toward the mountain, pass the old Pandora Mill on your left and follow the road marked County Road. Continue on this dirt road and go up the switchbacks for 1.2 miles to the bottom of falls, or go the extra .6 miles to the top of the falls. You don't have to stop here, however no vehicles are permitted beyond this point. The gate is the trailhead (next to the privately owned historic power plant) for bike rides or hikes into the awesome Bridal Veil Basin.
While driving, please be aware of runners, hikers, their dogs and other 4x4 vehicles.
