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.
Not sure if "moderate" is the right rating. Probably it was just extra wet due to the season. More challenging for the kids than we'd planned on, but a fun time, and beautiful waterfalls.
Lots of fun! Pretty steep at times, but absolutely beautiful and doable for a shorter timeframe. Make sure to get there early to avoid the tourist rush!
Amazing scenery. Near constant incline/decline. Road noise around Multhatman Falls. Nice workout and great views.
Water runs along the trail and views are beautiful.
Great hike! Some trees over the trail in places, but not impassable
