Not for the clumsy, plan to get wet to truly enjoy it. Feels like you're in a scene from one of the Lord of the rings movies.

On spring, this gorge is so flush green with wet moss on the trunks and the water melting down the mountain is ice cold. To everyone's thrill these two are the only source of what we call a "trail" in an usual hike. You have to jump ,crawl, hop over the tree trunks, pull your knees and walk over the... More

Great hike into a waterfall through a narrow canyon off of I-84 near Mulnomah Falls. Very busy on summer weekends. Plan to get wet and crawl over logs to get to the falls but great fun.

Bring shoes that you can get wet on a hot day. You will be wading through cool waters in a cave-like experience that will help you to forget the sun-baked temps in Portland.

Feels like a secret spot. I was only there once and went really early in the morning for some photography. Love this short hike, wade in water, and ending waterfall and plan on going again. Might be tricky for young kids crawling over the large stack of logs and the water wade at end. (It came up to my high... More

I don't know how I have passed this way so many times and not stopped to explore this gorge. This time, in search of a good picture, we got down at water level. My husband actually made the climb over the log jam and walked chest high through the water of the gorge to see the falls. We then did... More

Out of all the waterfalls we've seen so far in the Columbia River Gorge area, this is by far the most fun to get to - The hike is short but it consists of logjams, wading in chest deep water or bouldering (if you prefer not to get wet). Try to go on a sunny day as it gets cold... More

The gorge is just an amazing scenic drive. If you love nature, you would sure love this place! Hiking is the best here!

Take a short hike down a creek surrounded by cliffs to a waterfall. Go when it's warm, because the water is cold. Bring a swim suit, because the water gets deep at points.
