Bridal Veil Falls is a 60-foot-high waterfall located in Spearfish Canyon south of Spearfish, South Dakota. The name of this waterfall comes from the form of the water as it falls over the rock edge and thinly veils the limestone rock layers behind it like a lace veil.

Bridal Veil Falls is the easiest of the three waterfalls in Spearfish Canyon to access; there is a viewing platform right by the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway (U.S. Highway 14A). Parking is located on the opposite side of the road from the platform 5.8 miles south the northern start of the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway.

This waterfall is best viewed in the spring when the water flow is greater due to the snow melt. During the summer and fall the waterfall may be just a trickle. In the winter, Bridal Veil Falls is a popular spot for ice climbers.
