Bridal Veil Falls is another kid friendly hike along the Columbia Scenic Highway 25 minutes east of Portland, OR. When you are driving along the highway from Troutdale, OR east toward Multnomah Fall, Bridal Veil will be the second waterfall you come to. It’s just after Latourell Falls. If you would rather take I-84 out to the waterfall area then you will take the Bridal Veiil exit.
The Bridal Veil Falls hike is an easy one, less than a mile round trip. The paths are wide and it never gets terribly steep. Don’t let the paved trail deceive you at the beginning of your hike. Unlike Latourell Falls you will not be able to use a stroller, because the paved part ends and there are quite a few stairs. Be sure to keep an eye on your kids. There is a bridge to cross and then the path follows along Bridal Creek.
