Tallest Free-Falling Waterfall in Colorado

  • Rating: Intermediate
  • Hours: 2 hours round trip
  • Elevation Gain: 1,650 feet

An icon in Telluride, Bridal Veil Falls is a must-see while visiting the San Juans. The power plant sits atop the waterfall, which at 365 feet, is the tallest free-falling waterfall in Colorado. The hike up is on a gravel and dirt road shared with vehicles and bikes, but a new trail off of the road can be found ½ mile up on the right side. Check out the brand new Bridal Veil Creek Trail, which traverses up the mountainside and avoids the road. This is a 2.4-mile roundtrip hike.
