Lower Bridal Veil Falls, Oregon

Lower Bridal Veil is a breathtaking two teired waterfall just off the Historic Highway in the Columbia River Gorge. You can access it from I84 off Exit 28 (eastbound only) then take a right back toward the parking area, a 1/2 mile long trail leads down to the observation deck for the view of the falls.

Lower Bridal Veil has seen it’s fair share of kayakers in the last ten years…

It’s also another classic park and huck waterfall for kayakers in the area since it was first run in 2001.

This creek has some interesting history due to the logging mill operation throughout the creek. Here are a few photos I found of the alterations of the Lower Falls during the early 1900’s.
