Bridal Veil Loop Hike

Hike Description

NOTICE: Most trails on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge are closed until further notice because of damage from the Eagle Creek Fire. The closure involves ALL trails between Rooster Rock State Park and Hood River. It is anticipated that most of these trails may not reopen until Spring or Summer 2018. Please check the list of Columbia Gorge trail closures before you plan for a hike.

This is another of those super short hikes. Still, it makes a great stroll for kids or the elderly. This paved, all access trail circles the top of a bluff in Bridal Veil park. There are beautiful views of the river, as well as a good look at the transportation routes in the area. Numerous historic markers explain the history, geology and plant life of the area. Fragile camas plants bloom here in April. Hikers in the park should check out the Bridal Veil Falls Hike, as well.

In the wet months watch for several long ribbons of water cascading down the Cape Horn bluffs across in the Columbia River in Washington
