Overview

This is a medium difficulty out and back trail to Angels Rest in Oregon.

This trail is extremely popular as it's one of the closest hikes to the Portland metro area.

This trail goes by Coopey Falls.

The description in Sullivan’s book is a good one - it is called Angels Rest but you will not, as lest not until you reach the top. This hike has solid elevation gain for the whole 2.2 miles up.

Getting Started

Take the Bridal Veil Rd exit off 84 and park at the Angels Rest trailhead. Be sure to arrive early on the weekends as this trailhead can become extremely busy. Best to go during the week.

Taking Children

Good for experienced kid hikers - be cognizant of the crowds and let faster hikers pass as necessary.

    This trail has one of the best views in the gorge, but is also one of my least favorite. There is absolutely no escape or serenity on this trail. It is completely overrun and overused to the point that makes me feel guilty about treading on the path. I believe this trail should be closed to allow it to recover. I would recommend checking out Forest Park or Multnomah Falls for the folks in the city interested in doing this hike.

    On the first day of fall, the lower 1/4-1/3 mile is a little muddy and some of the scree areas are slippery. Near the top, about 2 miles in, there’s a gauntlet of poison oak. Otherwise, just a beautiful, iconic Gorge hike. Do it during the week and avoid the traffic jams!

    Our first time here since the devastating fire in the gorge. We were not disappointed. While there are burned areas with tree snags it is wonderful to see the lush green returning to the forest floor. And the wildflowers are especially beautiful. The views on the hike are even better than before. And of course the views from the top of Angels Rest are amazing

Angel's Rest, Columbia River Gorge, OR
A popular hike that is not far from Portland. Best to do during the week, otherwise it gets pretty crowded. Like most hikes in the Columbia Gorge, it does not disappoint. The hike also ties into other trails, such as Devil's Rest. I've hiked this a lot, as it is an easy drive and doesn't take too long to complete. A great weekday escape.
