Bridal Veil Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A hidden, often overlooked waterfall, Bridal Veil Falls is the perfect destination for young hikers and, of course, cataract connoisseurs. The trail is short, making it the ideal add-on to your day after doing one of the many longer nearby hikes. And while the falls is the prime attraction here in this small state park, be sure not to skip a trip out to the interpretive loop trail perched on the bluff for good views and, in late spring, flowering camas."

"A short walk to an overlook above Bridal Veil Falls with a nature trail option afterward."

"This 0.9-mile easy ramble takes you on a tour of two trails in Bridal Veil Falls State Park in the Columbia River Gorge. You’ll begin on the Overlook Loop Trail, which offers commanding views of the Columbia River Gorge and strolls through a wildflower meadow filled with the rare camas plant. The route continues on the Bridal Veil Falls Trail, which descends into a shady creek canyon and takes you to a grand viewpoint of Bridal Veil Falls."

"The Bridal Veil Falls State Scenic Viewpoint sits quietly in the Columbia River Gorge. Located just 15 miles east of Troutdale, the park features restrooms, picnic tables, open grassy areas, and two separate trails.

The Overlook Trail loop is a wheelchair-accessible interpretive trail that leads visitors to several stunning gorge views, including Washington’s Cape Horn directly across the river. The lower, non-wheelchair-accessible trail drops 0.3 mile down to the 118-foot-tall Bridal Veil Falls."

Bridal Veil Falls are an easy drive from Portland and they fill my heart every time I visit! It is a fun, pretty easy hike through lush, green, moss-covered trees to the gorgeous waterfall. Bridal Veil cascading into the river below is a wonderful sight. It may not be the biggest waterfall in Oregon but it is certainly one of the prettiest.

What a beautiful area. More of a nice walk than a hike. The Overlook Loop Trail is paved. This would be a great outing for the elderly and/or young children. I was there around 1:30 - 2:00 on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, therefore, It was very crowded. I never did make it to the Falls Trail because it was so crowded. I will go back in the Spring to view the Camas blooms.
