To get there, take I-84 out to exit 28 (Bridal Veil), then turn right onto the historic highway and drive 2.7 miles to the parking lot, on the left, for “Guy W. Talbot State Park”. Then take the looping 2.4 mile trail clockwise beginning at the uphill path at the back of the parking lot. This way around you’ll end the hike on a high note, at the base of the lower falls.

Pros

  • Two splendid waterfalls!
  • A good length trail for small children, with lots to see and get excited about.
  • It’s all really beautiful!

Cons

  • It goes without saying, but exercise caution. Although the route is not challenging by the standards of experienced hikers, there are steep and narrow sections, the odd fallen tree to step/clamber over and some steep drop-offs in places.
