Beautiful Waterfall. Short hike and easy hike (0.6 miles). Close proximity to other to other hikes in the Gorge. Quick drive from Portland.

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.

Short Hike, Beautiful Falls

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.

Short But Sweet

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