Bridal Veil Falls (Summer)

Directions: Take I-84 East to Bridal Veil exit #28. Take a right onto the Historic Columbia River Highway and in less than a half mile the Bridal Veil Falls parking area will be on your right.

From the parking area take the paved trail past the bathrooms (following the sign directing you towards the falls). The path soon turns into a dirt trail and takes you down a long switchback. After the switchback you cross a small bridge and head down a few stairs that lead you to another bridge over Bridal Veil Creek.

There are two options to view the waterfall. You can head down to the creek and walk up and around a giant rock to a small area at the base of the waterfall. Or, you can keep following the trail up some more stairs to a viewing deck. Both give you a good view of the waterfall.

This is an out-and-back hike so head back the way you came in.
