We had never been along this road on the Columbia River so it was a very nice diversion. Literally several (seven) falls along this route. Bridle Veil was the first we saw because the road was closed outside of Corbett. We went this fall and in the early morning so there was not a lot of traffic. I would imagine... More

you can catch of glimpse, but only a glimpse, from the road as you pass by in your car or however you're traveling; but for a good photo or just a moment of reflection you must park and get out and take a short few steps... slight uphill... to appreciate the grandeur of this one.

the hike down (and back up) to the falls was one of the more grueling ones (hey, we are an older couple). The falls are two-tiered and very high, you can't get too near them easily. I would skip this in favor of other ones if time or energy are an issue. They are lovely.

Everything was so green on this hike. The tree bark was covered in moss and small ferns. Just lovely. The waterfall was quite impressive too. It is a downhill trail that you must walk back up. I didn't mind but some people might.

This is one of the easiest to hike to falls around the Portland area- not too long of a drive to get there. The parking lot fills up fast so you are likely to have to wait if you come too late in the day. It's a pretty spot with lots of pine and hard woods. You can access the... More

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls near the end of a long day of hiking and exploring. We thought we might be jaded by that point, but when we reached the end of the .3 mile hike and arrived at the viewing platform, we still caught our breath at the beauty of the falls before us. Definitely worth the hike... More

This beautiful waterfall is less than a third of a mile from the parking area. Definitely well worth taking the time to stop and enjoy the view along scenic old Highway 30.

This waterfall is gorgeous and it's no wonder they call it Bridal Veil. The hike down is easy and coming back up takes a little effort but it's not bad. My kids were able to do it just fine. We had a couple taking engagement photos and they came out in all our pictures, oh well. Lol

The walk down to the falls is just as enjoyable as the falls themselves. Well maintained trail, fencing and benches is very doable. An elderly man with a cane was able to make it down, enjoy and walk back up (slowly though!), Rest rooms were clean and conveniently located. Great spot for photos.

Beautiful water falls and the sounds are great. Easy access and a great place to stop by to view nature and maybe take a hike.
