Bridal Veil Falls is a beautiful waterfall located right off the Columbia River Gorge Highway just east of Portland, Oregon. The trail to the waterfall is relatively short at less than one mile roundtrip. Plan for 20 minutes of trail time to stop and take in the falls.

The trailhead for this short hike is right off of the Columbia River Highway just west of Multnomah Falls. You can't miss the parking lot for it; there is a sign for Bridal Veil and the parking lot is visible from the road.

The hike is only 0.6 miles and has hardly any elevation gain (70 feet). The trail is well traveled and is definitely good for families. The hike may not be much, but it does go through some pretty woods and crosses a bridge over the stream. The waterfall is a beautiful 2 tiered falls. You can view the falls from the observation deck or take a small path to the big rock in front of the falls.

This is a good hike to tack onto the end of a trip to the Columbia River Gorge as it's on the way back to Portland.

Bridal Veil Falls Reviews

The 0.6 hike doesn’t make this very worth it to drive out to but it is still beautiful to photograph once ya get there

I thought it was a very pretty waterfall. Simple, short, and easy hike. Family friendly yes, but don’t take a stroller down as there are stairs along the trail. Loved the greenery around the waterfalls!

This was not my favorite stop along HWY 30, but it is a good stop for a short hike. This one would be good for kids, but there isn't much to explore around the waterfall so I found it anti-climatic.

It's not my favorite Oregon waterfall, but it's still beautiful! a fun short hike to this pleasant falls and creek. as always, choose wisely when planning a trip to the gorge as it gets SUPER busy, especially during the summer months! weekdays (and early morning starts on weekends) are your friend.



Young and Old can make it down this short an easy hike for a spectacular view!

Went in the pouring rain today! Ended up being a lot shorter than I expected, but it still was a sight to see.
