We took the trail as recommended from the falls to devil’s rest to angels rest and back. The first 1.6 miles with constant view of the falls is like none other with plenty of water especially at the time of my walk in late October. I had to stop so many times for photo moments since they were filled with them. Afterwards comes #420 to devils rest. The trail is super well marked and has a fair share of elevation gain but with lots of switch backs it makes the climb relatively modest. Don’t expect to see a lot at the peak but when we climbed it was a cold and cloudy day and hence visibility was poor but really enjoyed the path. Then came the idea of if I go back the same way or go to angels rest. We decided to do angels rest. I did not expect such a beautiful view of the gorge from Angels rest BUT super windy and super scary path. Still did it since it was a beautiful view. The wind was super scary. Then came the worst part of the next 2.3 miles that takes you from Angels rest to the common path to go down. This was not a path that is maintained and plenty of trees in the path. It was not a pleasant path at all. I was waiting for this path to be done. Over all I logged 11.5 miles and this is my first over 10 mile hike. Enjoyed it throughly and had a lot of photo moments. I would strongly recommend this trail but for that shady 2.3 miles.

Many, many people and dogs on the way up to Angels Rest and many, many branches and logs on the trail to Wahkeena Falls.

Need spikes right now, very icy areas and very under-equipped hikers. Beware!

Hiked a similar route in reverse Saturday, Jan 11, 2020. GPX coordinates are on GAIA. Need two cars. Park one at Wahkeena and start the hike at Angels Rest. Weather was overcast with light showers on and off until around 2000 ft on the way to Devils Rest. Had some snow/sleet mix for a short bit on the last push up to Devils Rest. The trail from Devils Rest down to Wahkeena was muddy.

This was an amazing hike, I did it today. It never failed to impress. Every single bend was a picture. This hike also took us through the heart of the gorge fire and it looks amazing as the ferns and undergrowth are growing back!

Way to crowded for my liking. I’ll stick to my secluded hikes.
