- Water on trail
I arrived on the trail around 8:30am, there were a few cars already at the trailhead. It had been raining the night before which probably contributed to the mud holes and water on the trail. Their not deep, so depending on your footwear you can walk right through them. Splashing in the mud and water reminded me of childhood; it was fun.
If you have a fear of heights, which I do, be warned there are a few points on both the trail to Lake Serene and Bridal Veil Falls, where you may need to pause, or at least not look down.
The best advice I received while on the trail was to cross the bridge at Lake Serene to Lunchbox Rock. It was an excellent spot to have lunch, just needed a good dose of insect repellant, so the mosquitos didn't dine on me.
