Bridal Veil Falls (Oregon)


Bridal Veil Falls (Oregon)

Bridal Veil Falls is a waterfall located on the Columbia River Gorge in Multnomah County, Oregon, United States.

The Historic Columbia River Highway passes over Bridal Veil Falls on a bridge. From a parking lot on the highway, a winding footpath and another bridge lead to a vantage point for the falls. The falls consists of two cascades in quick succession along angling rockfaces, so when there is a good amount of water the falls looks very much like its namesake.

There is a post office at the nearby community of Bridal Veil that handles a lot of mail, most of it wedding invitations shipped there in order to have the town's postmark applied to them.
