Bridal Veil Falls, Oregon

Bridal Veil Falls in April 2008

Bridal Veil Falls is another one of those amazingly beautiful waterfalls found along the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side. This is the first waterfall that I visited there. It is one of the easier waterfalls to visit, though it actually cannot be seen directly from the road.

In order to view the falls, you have to head from the parking lot toward the trail and take the 1/4 mile trail. It does have a small gradient, but it is a beautiful trail. When I visited in early May, the trail was surrounded with Western Bleeding Hearts. The waterfall has a great viewing area at the end of the trail.


  1. From I-84, take Exit 28 and get onto the Historic Columbia River Highway.
  2. From the exit, look for milepost 28, where you’ll find the parking area for Bridal Veil Falls. It’s a little bit hidden, but not that hard to find at all.

Accessibility: 8/10 (easy/moderate)
Height: 118′
Length of Hike: 0.5 miles round-trip
