Wahkeena Falls Hike

This easy family friendly hike is a great choice for a summer day out with the family. Enjoy the beautiful forest scenery, and wonderful view of the waterfall.
This beautiful trail starts by crossing a wooden bridge over Wahkeena Creek. Be sure to head right here; the trail to the left leads to Multnomah Falls. The trail climbs to a stone bridge at the base of Wahkeena Falls, where spray on the trail here is year-round. In the winter, this can get very icy. The trail then starts up a steep section, climbing about 400 feet in half a mile. At the top of this first climb, you'll crest a ridge. Follow the pavement out to the point, called Lemmon's Viewpoint. Return the route you ascended.
