Day Hikes  2014 - Wahkeena Trail  [41]

2014 - Wahkeena Trail

Early May Columbia Gorge hike up the Wahkeena Falls trail to Wahkeena Spring, then returning via the Vista Point and Wahkeena Falls trails. This is one of my favorite Gorge hikes, the scenery as the trail ascends through the narrow Wahkeena Creek gorge is spectacular. Given the popularity of this trail we did an early 6:30AM start, encountering only a handful of other hikers until we were most of the way back down. Total distance was just over 4 miles, with a ~1500 foot elevation gain/loss.
