0.4 Miles Easy
The Bridal Veil Overlook Loop Trail in Corbett, Oregon is an easy and flat 0.4 mile hike out to a cliff overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. A famous rock tower known as the Pillars of Hercules, a 120-foot
basalt tower once used as a training site for mountain climbing, can be
seen from this loop along with various lookout points of the Columbia River and the Gorge.
Most of the trail is wheelchair accessible as most of it is paved; however, there are some gravel sections with roots as well. In the shoulder seasons, this trail is lightly trafficked and is less popular than the Latourell Falls Loop Trail.
Waterfalls: While there are no waterfalls directly on this trail, there's a large 50+ foot waterfall across the Columbia River that you can see spilling down into the river from the cliffs in Washington. You should also take the time to hike down the Bridal Veil Falls Trail for a short 0.6 mile out-and-back hike for a closer look at the 120 foot tall waterfall.
