We have many wonderful waterfalls in Oregon. Some are in remote places and others are very easy to get to. It is always an adventure to head to the countryside to spend the day visiting mother nature and take a hike. Oregon waterfalls are icing on the cake at the end of the hike.

Bridal Veil Falls is just one of the many waterfalls to embrace here in Oregon. It is a short hike about 0.6 mile round trip hike. It will get your heart to pumping on the way back to the parking lot. It is all up hill.

There are benches for those of you who would like to stop and enjoy the woods and take a break.

This is a fun hike with a great view of the waterfall when you reach the end of the trail.

Oregon Coastal Mountain RangeMay 2015 058

The Oregon Coastal Mountain Range has lush green trees and beautiful forest floor plants. As you explore into Oregon’s forests in the spring there are a large variety of wildflowers scattering the landscape.

Some of these native plants love peeking up in the spring and throughout the year. We start looking for native plants like the Three-Toothed mitrewort in the early spring.

Oregon Wildflowers

Horsetail Wild Flowers

This week as we enjoyed exploring the Oregon Coastal Mountain Range we also found some northern giant horsetail or some of us like calling it snake grass. It is located in the picture to the right. This plant is native to the area and located throughout this mountain range.

So, keep your eyes open when you are out on a hike in the Oregon’s Coastal Mountain Range. You may find some surprises as you are hiking. They are popping up everywhere. 

Enjoy the native surrounding that are all around us. Sometimes we get so involved with our day-to-day lives we forget to enjoy the simple things like these beautiful native plants.
