Description

The Bridal Veil Trail starts at the road closure gate and proceeds south on an old mining road past the privately-owned powerhouse. Visitors are asked to stay on the trail and respect private property.

As trail users ascend into the Basin, there will be opportunities to take side roads/trails to Silver Lake and Blue Lake. At about mile 3.5, the trail passes within view of the Lewis Mill and Lewis Lake. The Mill, recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a 5-story structure that served as a 60-ton capacity ore concentration facility in the early 1900's. The structure is owned by San Miguel County who reroofed the mill building in 2006.

At its terminus, the trail intersects with the Wasatch Trail #508 and the Blixt Trail #508.1A.
