Loved this trail up the mountain. First time up I lost my breath but felt so accomplished once I reached the top falls!

Not closed. Check US Forest websites, not All trails. Some down trees but good condition. Mileage is off&longer than it appears on this app.

Started early which was essential as parking was over full by the time I returned. Hike up to devils rest was great though I dont thing actually going to devils rest was anything worth seeing. Angels rest was spectacular and just what I wanted it to be. Hike from Angels rest to Wahkeena was very quiet and not much too see. Gps Clocked the trail at almost 13 miles.

As others mentioned it is longer than 9 miles, watch had it closer to 12. The hike up to Devils Rest is great, it is overgrown from there to Angels Rest. The descent is also spectacular.

The trail was nice and had quite a few waterfalls and other nice views (if you catch it on a clear day). It was interesting to see the burned trees and regrowth. Not all of the trail is in the burn area, but a good portion. Majority of the day was cloudy/misty for us, but at least the temperature was cool. The trail as listed is definitely incorrect mileage. We went from Multnomah falls to devils rest and then went towards angels rest, but decided we wanted to cut back early. It looked like there is a path called foxglove way on the map, but this is a very unmaintained trail. We lost the trail for part of the time and were bush wacking. I would say commit all the way to angels head because there isn’t a good way we could find at least to make this loop shorter. Would definitely recommend long pants. A lot of the trails had some overgrowth too. It took us about 10 miles cutting through on foxglove way. Beautiful hike! Start early and bring lots of water and food!

We did Multnomah to Devils Rest to Angels Rest down Wahkeena. Took 7 hours moving at a good clip. Total miles was over 14 despite sticking to the exact map on this app. Elevation gain was 3600 plus feet. Arrived at 7 a.m. to plenty of parking. Returned to a total overcrowded madhouse. Regrowth amidst all the scorched trees from the 2017 Eagle Creek Fire is encouraging. Still some pretty wild flowers, lots of water in the creeks and the falls. Lots of the once familiar terrain is altered by the fire, but still fantastic, and in some cases, even opened up visibility.

Fantastic hike!! We started with the Multnoma trail which was a moderate hike up the mountain, we got to see Multnoma falls and Columbia river while hiking up. Then we took the Wahkeena trail hiking down, which was a steep inclination so it was best to hike down on it instead of the other way around. I would recommend starting from Multnoma trail and ending with Wahkeena because Multnoma trail has a much easier hiking trail.

I did the 6 mile version of this loop. It was awesome! So many waterfalls and beautiful spots to rest. The weather was perfect. Highly recommend. Took me 3 hours to do.

What a BEAUTIFUL trail! WOW! You hit all the marks here if you want to beat the insane crowds of Multnomah. Started at 6am and took the trail from Wakeenah Falls trailhead and took the path countercloser clockwise! HIGHLY recommend this! Your climb is less steep and you hit angels ridge earlier which can also get crowded. Once you get on the trail we experienced solitude. The beautiful trail only gets better. Devils rest was not much to look at. On the way back down found a little Upper Falls that was secluded and climbed down and ate our picnic. It was AWESOME!

5/11/19 We got to the bridge in front of the falls and saw the “closed for public safety”sign. Bummer, but we walked to the other end of the parking lot and hiked to Devil’s rest and Angel’s rest. Beautiful hike!!

The signage at some spots is not clear for this trail. I followed the map and it added 2 extra miles. Otherwise a great hike! Beautiful up top with some incredible views

The trail is open! We hiked it Sunday, along with many other people, happy to be back on this trail. There is evidence of the fire with standing scared trees and more open areas, but it is still one of my favorite hikes in the gorge.

Such a pretty hike. Nice hike to get a little bit of everything from the gorge.
