Bridal Overlook Trail is a steep singletrack leading up to an excellent viewpoint overlooking the northern part of the Forest and Bridal Veil Falls. The trail up is very rocky in places and is an aerobic workout with a steep climb most of the way. When you get to the end of the trail, the overlook point is tucked behind some trees and bushes but it is there if you look.

       Just rode this trail yesterday. I don't think many bikers take this trail, but I could be wrong. It's covered in very loose stones that roll easily under your tires in the steeper sections. Once you make it to the top, it does have a nice view of forested mountains from a small rocky cliff, but I could only see a couple tiny spots of Little River. I could hear rushing water but couldn't see any falls. It's OK for a workout, but don't expect an awesome falls view once you reach the top.
