Bridal Veil Falls

April 19th, 2009
About 2 easy miles***14 people including 9 new ***

Really nice weather

This “Short Sunday Stroll” turned out to be very popular as there was a good turnout for it including several of Dave’s relatives. It’s a good trail for bringing kids along. Dave lead this one as I was gone for the weekend.

The group went down a short hill, crossed the creek, then up a long set of stairs to a viewing platform overlooking 130’, double-drop Bridal Veil Falls. After returning on the same trail to the parking lot, they passed through the camas field on the level, paved loop to see the view across the river from the cliffs. From here you can see Cape Horn straight across, and the Pillars of Hercules to the west.

The camas flowers were late this year, but the group enjoyed the leisurely stroll on this sunny day. Some of the group stopped at DQ on the way home.
