Bridal Veil Falls is one of the more accessible waterfalls along the Historic Highway in the Columbia Gorge. You do have to hike a bit, and it’s down all the way there and up all the way back, but the round trip is only 2/3 mile. It’s a beautiful double falls landing in a misty pool, and you can take it in from a crows nest viewpoint or scramble down a rocky slope to get up close. Today there were only a handful of visitors, and it was a peaceful getaway.
There is a lot of spring runoff rushing through Lacamas Creek, even with all the dry weather we’ve had. The Lower Falls are beautiful, and a short easy 1/2 mile hike from the trailhead along 3rd Ave. in Camas.
First time to Catherine Creek! What a lovely spot with great open views. Ideal for sun and wildflowers. Catherine Creek is located between Bingen and Lyle off of SR 14, at Rowland lake, turn onto Old Hwy 8/Lyle White Salmon Rd., follow this road to the Catherine Creek Trailhead in about a mile. We took the high road, but there also appears to be a lower loop, which we did not do, but would enjoy hearing from others who have!
