An amazing gorge hike with several beautiful waterfalls, including one you can walk behind. This trail begins at Eagle Creek Campground and ends at Wahtum Lake. This is a nice out and back hike with great scenery of waterfalls, ferns, and rocky outcroppings. It's quite popular with easy vehicle access at the trailhead, so plan to see a lot of other hikers and is part of the Pacific Crest Trail. This hike is not far from Portland and is best in the spring or early summer to really appreciate the beautiful waterfalls.

Alot of nice waterfalls!! Not a kid friendly hike due to many cliffs.

GPS showed a 7 mile hike to Tunnel Falls from trail head and trail sign states 6. I highly recommend this to anyone but it might not be advisable for young kids with pent up energy due to narrow trails with steep slopes.
