Trail Description Driving Directions

alert Trail Alert, Sep 4, 2017: Trail closed due to Eagle Creek wildfire.  https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5584/ |#eaglecreekfire 

This is a quick, but nice stroll for kids or less mobile hikers. The trail is paved, and all-access, circling the top of a bluff in Bridal Veil Park. There are beautiful views of the Columbia River, as well as a good look at the transportation routes in the area. Numerous historic markers explain Gorge history, geology and plant life. Hikers in the park should check out the Bridal Veil Falls Hike as well.
