Bridalveil Fall
Under Construction

Parking for the trailhead is reached from I-93, exit 38 in Franconia. Follow RT-116 south from the interchange for 3. 5 miles. On your left look for Coppermine Road. This is a private road, but parking for the hike is allowed at its beginning. While this is one of the longer hikes into a waterfall, it’s well worth the effort. Despite that the hike is 5 miles round trip, it’s a very popular one so arrive early to secure a legal parking spot. You’ll start the hike walking up the road for approximately . 3 of a mile. On your left you’ll finally notice a sign for the trail to the falls. While the trail to the falls is long, its steepness is moderate, your walking up next to the Coppermine Brook and when you reach the camping shelter, just another 1/4 mile and you’ll at the lower pool of the falls. The steepest part of the journey is the last 100 yards to the actual Bridalveil Falls. Allow 4 hours round trip.
