Bridal Veil Falls is a 607-foot tall double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon, Utah. An aerial tramway service to the top of the falls was built in 1967 and the small, six-passenger tramway functioned as a recreational attraction and as the only access (except via helicopter) to a restaraunt situated on a cliff at the top of the falls until an avalanche destroyed the tram in early 1996. (This was the second major avalanche to destroy the tram. The tram and visitor center was rebuilt after the first avalanche, but after the second disaster, it has remained as it is today.) When the tramway was in operation prior to the 1996 avalanche, it was heralded as the "world's steepest aerial tramway," although that claim is difficult to ascertain. The falls were a featured point along the route of the Heber Creeper tourist train until the train discontinued its service past the falls. The train tracks in front of the falls were removed and converted into a recreational trail. Now the falls and a small park just west of the falls (Bridal Veil Park) can also be accessed via U.S. Highway 189.
