“Great hike.”

A fairly easy hike with some uneven terrain. We hiked it in our flip flops but maybe should have had runners. The fork in the road is a loop that takes you to the falls & around the river. Have $5 cash to pay for parking. Definitely worth stop.

A relatively easy hike (was not the easiest for my 73 yr old mother). The parking lot is relatively small, and we definitely didn't have the trail to ourselves, but it was still a great find.

don't forget there is a $5 parking fee here & you'll want to come early. but this will be the most spectacular thing you ever spent 5 bucks on. one mile in and one mile out, this is an easy rated hike. Wahclella Falls is breathtaking, simply put. You can't get lost since the trail splits and makes a big LOOP. we like to do the shady tree side on the way back so it is cooler. sit on the big rock in front of the falls and have someone take the gorgeous photo you'll put on your Christmas
card. Then cross under the freeway and check out Bonneville Dam.

We hesitate to bring more folks here but it is a great hike- it feels like a rain forest with a cascading pool at the end and it is a loop of about 2-2 1/2 miles

This was one of our favorite hikes from the Columbia Gorge area and it's pretty doable for anyone. There's not much elevation gain to this short hike. Leave yourself time to explore the beautiful falls and climb among the rocks. Get off the highway and enjoy yourself!
