If there is anything my life has taught me- live each and every day- don’t waste it. Our lives are precious and who knows what is just around the bend. But sometimes we just don’t have time for a huge adventure. It is times like these, that I like to explore new areas close to home.
I spotted this viewpoint when I was heading to Latourell Falls so I decided to come back with my dogs Boomer and Jack to check it out. If you haven’t checked out my post on the falls- I highly recommend you give it a read. It is now one of my all time favorite hikes: https://myamazing2ndchapter.com/2020/07/29/latourell-falls-loop-trail-corbett-oregon/. You could easily do both of these adventures on the same day.
We did both the loop trail and the falls trail. The viewpoint trail is fairly flat and paved- anyone can enjoy this one. The Bridal Veil Trail is fairly easy and well maintained- but it is a little more of a hike. it is downhill all the way to the falls and uphill coming back. I did get a little winded on the way back- but there are some benches for you to relax and catch your breath if you need. But overall a easy hike. 😀
Just before the falls we played in the creek.. We all put our feet in the water. Jack gave me such a sad face when it was time to leave the creek. He loves the water! This was definitely his favorite part- maybe even better then the car ride!
This is a stunning water fall! There is a little trail down to the bottom of the falls and it looked like on a hot day you could cool off in the water down below. Definitely- will have to do that!
The overlook trail is beautiful as it gives you an opportunity to enjoy the true beauty of the Columbia Gorge! I feel so lucky to have this so close to home. It is approximately 20 minutes from the east end of Portland Metro Area.
This was a perfect way for me to take the dogs for a walk and help fill my need for a little bit of adventure. There is just something extra exciting about exploring a new trail. Lucky for me- I don’t have to go far to find a fun adventure. 😀
