Located in the Bedford Reservation, Bridal Veil Falls is one of Ohio's most elegant and peaceful waterfalls. I've found myself spending hours here completely at peace and awestruck by how amazing nature truly is. Just a short 5-minute walk from here is the Deerlick Creek waterfalls  which I highly recommend visiting as well.​

Getting to Bridal Veil Falls:
To get to the waterfall, park at the Bridal Veil Falls Trailhead, located off Gorge Parkway in the Bedford Reservation. If you entered the reservation from the east (the Shawnee Hills Golf Course Entrance), then the trailhead will be 1.9 miles down Gorge Parkway on the left side of the road.  The area is well marked and you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding the trailhead. Once parked, cross the street and take the boardwalk steps down to the waterfall. The trail to the waterfall is no more than a 1/4 mile out and back. If you continue on the trail that goes over the creek for a mile you'll end up at the Tinkers Creek Gorge Overlook, one of the most impressive overlooks in all of Northeast Ohio

Nearby waterfalls:

Like said above, the Deerlick Creek Waterfalls are just a short walk away. The Great Falls of Tinkers Creek, a thundering 20-foot tall, 80-foot wide waterfall, is a 3 mile drive from here. The small waterfalls of Hemlock Creek are also in the Bedford Reservation, and are roughly 2 miles away.
