DescriptionBridal Veil, a former lumber mill community in a valley along the Historic Columbia River Highway, is surrounded by rocky cliffs and waterfalls. One such cliff is Angel's Rest, which commands spectacular views from nearly 2,000 feet above the Columbia River. A 2.4-mile trail leads to the top, passing Coopey Falls along the way. To reach the trailhead from Portland, take I-84 exit 28; the parking lot is just a half mile beyond the interstate exit.
The Bridal Veil Post Office, near the I-84 interchange, was established July 7, 1887, and is one of the oldest post offices in Oregon. During the height of wedding season in spring and summer, the post office sees thousands of wedding invitations as brides want the town's sought-after postmark stamped on their invitations.
