Angel’s Rest Trail A3

Little known even amongst true Gorge waterfall aficionados is Coopey Falls.  Coopey Falls spills about 120 feet directly behind the convent of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist.  The Sisters’ convent is in the 1920s Italian Villa “House at Bridal Veil”.  There is an entire book devoted to this house and the Sisters’ time in it: look for it here on Amazon .

Coopey falls hides behind the convent, but if you drive up the driveway, park, and ring the doorbell…the Sisters are more than happy to let you walk up the short path to see the hidden Coopey Falls.  The directions to the convent are in my text, as are the walking directions to Coopey falls.
