The 2.8 mile Wahkeena Trail offers beautiful scenery and multiple loop opportunities. It provides access to Vista Point Trail #419, Angel's Rest Trail #415, Larch Mountain Trail #441 and Devil's Rest Trail #420C.
Attractions include an historic stone arch bridge, Wahkeena Falls and Fairy Falls (pictured).
Wahkeena Falls Day Use/Picnic Area/Trailhead is 0.5 miles west of Multnomah Falls along the Historic Highway.
Wahkeena Trail intersects several other trails, which can be combined to provide several different backpacking experiences. Please consult a good, up to date map when planning backpacking trips.
For a full day of hiking head up to Devil's Rest, a 7.3 mile round trip hike. Or travel as far along the trail as you feel comfortable.
Two waterfalls, Wahkeena and Fairy, are visible along this trail, as well as many views of the Columbia Gorge, through a fire scorched forest.
