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.

07/21/17. Great hike. Plan to do this one early. Park at Multnomah Lodge, directly below the falls. Walk up and admire the awesome view of Multnomah Falls, then proceed DIRECTLY back toward the lot, and walk past the giftshop/lodge, approximately 600 feet west along the road to Return Trail (it is right before the No Pedestrians sign on the road). Start on Return Trail, which will lead you the Wahkeena side of the Wahkeena-Multnomah Loop. Take the Wahkeena side up and finish down the Multnomah side. You will not be disappointed, as the Wahkeena side is relatively quiet w/ awesome waterfalls along the way. Also, the switchbacks here are easier and far less crowded than the ones on the Multnomah side. Enjoy the spectacular view from the top of Multnomah Falls on the way down. Once you are finished, grab lunch from the lodge restaurant, which serves up good food.
