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."
--Craig Romano, Day Hiking Columbia River Gorge (The Mountaineers Books).
"A short walk to an overlook above Bridal Veil Falls with a nature trail option afterward."
--Russ Schneider, revised by Jim Yuskavitch, Hiking The Columbia River Gorge (Falcon Guides).
"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."
--Lizann Dunegan, Best Easy Day Hikes: Portland, Oregon (Falcon Guides).
"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."
--Adam Sawyer, Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon (Falcon Guides).
