This is a beautiful loop in the gorge that brings you to one of the best waterfalls in the area. This loop hike passes by several waterfalls. The trail ascends Wahkeena Creek past the springs which feed the waterfall and then continues onto Larch Mountain Trail which brings you to Multnomah Falls. Looking down from the top of the tallest waterfall in Oregon is pretty amazing! The trail then descends down to the Multnomah Lodge and returns via a the highway to the Wahkeena parking lot.

Awesome hike with about 7 waterfalls if you link with the multnomah falls trail. Also a natural spring to refill your water bottle, so you don't have to worry about drinking too much of yours while ascending the many switchbacks. Signage is easy to follow

Awesome trail, one of my favorites. Pretty enlightening experience. Moderate to difficult in some areas.

Fantastic trail! Our GPS gave us 6.5 miles round trip. Lots of uphill one way but after that it's relatively flat. I'd start the Wakeena way- less people.

This is one of my favorite hikes, and the one that I take most of my out-of-towners to go see. Lots of beautiful waterfalls, views, gorgeous forest and it's not so long or so steep that I completely flatten them. Love this hike.

great hike with beautiful views of falls, specially close to Wakheena falls at multiple spots, fairy falls and ecola falls (digression to go near ecola falls is worth it). start from the wakheena side, was less crowded.

Love this trail! Only takes a few hours if you want to race around but there are a lot of pictures to be had! Very beautiful country I would love to hike this again

wonderful waterfalls, rambling streams, monstrous trees, overlooks and lots of tourist (near the lower levels of the falls) to get a chuckle out of trying to hike in flip flops or sandles. would of loved to have more time to explore deeper into the forest.

Magic happens about 2 miles in, and you won't stop being amazed until you get back to the start. Still one of my all-time favorite hikes. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
