Bridal Veil Falls, Oregon

One of our favorite Northwest moment is enjoying a nice stroll or hike to a waterfall. With several mountain ranges paired with rainy weather, we are lucky to have an abundance of them. Bridal Veil Falls in the Columbia River Gorge is one of our favorites.

A drive along the gorge features a preponderance of waterfalls (which is why we included it on our list of scenic Northwest drives). Bridal Veil, like most of the falls in the Northwest, runs at full steam almost year-round – August and perhaps September being the lowest volume months.

In the winter, you can get lucky to see some frozen falls – but careful, because if the falls are frozen then the roads are likely quite hazardous in gorge area.
