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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
