Bridal Veil Falls in RMNP and Waterfront Grille by Estes Lake

Bridal Veil Falls is a 6.1 mile hike that starts at 7,855 feet and has just 977 feet of elevation gain. Want to see what it looks like? Here's a link to a picture and some additional information: http://www.protrails.com/trail/rocky-mountain-national-park-bridal-veil-falls. The forecast is for wildflowers, some walking in open space, and some meandering under trees. Perhaps we'll see some elk. And the water should be roaring this time of year, so bring your cameras. Just FYI, his will probably be my last "low" altitude hike for awhile. After this, I'll start posting higher elevation hikes where it's cooler. After the hike, let's grab a bite and a beer at the Waterfront Grille by Estes Lake. We can eat on their outdoor balcony or indoors where it's cooler --- both have great views!

    Nice trail, and lovely, cool weather. Thanks for organizing it, Norm. Thanks again for being the chauffeur, Richie. Btw, folks, cheese was an option, not standard on my sandwich -- I checked. I didn't request it, and it wasn't mentioned by the server. The second plate they brought (there was an extra sandwich lying around in the kitchen?) had stone cold, soggy fries. After waiting so long, I just didn't want to eat a disappointing meal. It was better for me to politely opt out. No biggie for me, and someone in the kitchen got a free meal. I hope my decision to decline my food didn't spoil the day for anyone. ; p

    Since we will be driving from Greeley, it may be better for us to meet at the trailhead. About what time do you expect to be there?

      We'll probably be at the trailhead around 10:30 am, give or take a few minutes. See you guys there!
