Hike Description

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
