Hike to Upper Bridal Veil Falls

Oregon Upper Bridal Veil Falls Pull-Off

Added by

This is a great scramble down the hill-side to a gorgeous, unexplored waterfall that few people have been to.

At the parking lot for Angel's Rest, turn left uphill on to Palmer Mill Road. Drive for about a mile, and park right past a tributary stream/small waterfall (pictured above) on your left that flows through a small pipe under the road. You will see a small space to park on the right. Park here and you will see a faint trail beaten down only by foot. Start walking down the trail, and it will gradually get more difficult. You will want to keep walking and climbing down towards the creek. This short climb down will take a bit of time due to the slippery footing. Be careful where you step, or you may end up sliding down the hillside. Once you reach the creek, walk upstream, and you will see the falls! Hike back out the same way you came in. This is not a good hike for children or dogs.

How to Get There

about 2 months ago

Avoid The Circus Here!

After reading this write up about it, I decided to take a little trip there. The directions were absolutely on point, and and the waterfall was absolutely beautiful. The biggest plus for me is that there was not another soul in sight. You don't get the rush of the tourists going there, you just get solidarity and the beautiful of this large curtain waterfall. 10/10 recommend, great write up Austin!

While the Portland Japanese Garden is a popular place for tourists, it's also a favorite for Portland residents as it's located right in Washington Park close to trails and across from the Rose Garde.

Run the Saltzman Road Trail

Oregon / Lower Saltzman Road Trailhead

This trail is an easy out and back from either the west or east side of Forest Park. The east trailhead is off NW Skyline Blvd, on Saltzman Road, which is a dirt/gravel road like the trail.
