Beautiful drive along the Columbia River. lower half is much more scenic being in the deeper part of the canyon and more trees. Upper half is dry and more barren

The best view of my Hood up close. The soil is very sandy at some points and has many ups and downs. Well worth it. So... it's was nice to have my dirtygirlgators.com on my shoes to keep the sand and trail out and my hiking poles made the inclines easy!

Get there early to avoid crowds. Nice hike about 120 floors up. Skeptical about being "enchanting" on the loop back, but it was. No bridge to cross river, that was a bit nerve racking for me personally, but I'm sure it's easy for some

This hike was great. A good balance challenge with roots and rocks, and quite a bit of mud. The views along the trail are beautifully amazing however the final end point is quite disappointing compared to the views you get on the actual trail

Absolutely stunning! One of my favorite trails. It can be slick in some spots, but overall this trail is very rewarding for the effort. Lots of views of the Columbia, lots of waterfalls, and lush forest. Some people who are not used to hiking may be discouraged from the elevation accent. However an experienced hiker can do it in flip flops (I did).

The road getting up there was fairly well maintained. The trail leading down to the fall is steep and muddy, but has ropes to hold on to. However, this trail may be too intense for four legged friends (dogs).
Once down ate the bottom, you are rewarded with a large waterfall cascading over volcanic columns. An Ideal place to cool off, the pool at the bottom of the fall seems safe and is definately large enough to swim in.

Very difficult. Hiked to the summit. Half the hike is very steep with loose sandy rock so you take 2 steps forward and slide 1 step back. Would not do again.

This was a great hike! Steady uphill and got the blood pumping. It was a rainy day, but still absolutely beautiful. I'm definitely going to do this trail again some day when the sun's out so I can actually see the ocean!

One of my favorites! It's definitely worth going all the way to Wahtum Lake and camping if you have the time.
