Wachlella Falls ~ An easy, relaxing hike to one of the prettiest waterfalls in the Gorge.

Elowah Falls and Upper McCord Falls ~ A lovely hike to two beautiful, less visited falls

Wahkenna Falls to Fairy Falls ~ The trail climbs to the base of Wahkeena falls, continues up a steep climb to an overlook of the Columbia River Gorge, then up to Fairy Falls. Return the way you came, or follow the path above Fairy Falls to Multnomah Falls.
