  • Wahkeena Falls in another waterfall along the Scenic highway that you can easily see from your car. Wahkeena is a Yakima tribe word that means “Most Beautiful” and indeed it is, if you are talking abo...  more »
  • August 23, 2017 - On our way from Portland on Route 30, we stopped at several waterfalls and Wahkeena Falls was number 3. While we did not take the hike that some people mention in their reviews, we e...  more »
  • We stopped here on a very busy weekend. We had no trouble parking and I recommend to park here if you are planning to go to Multnomah falls and do not mind a .5 mile hike or a 5 mile hike. We chose th...  more »

  • A nice place to view waterfalls, for all levels of outdoor abilities. Parking right at the lower falls. A bit if a hike up hill to the next fall that you can walk behind. Up more for another two. The path is well maintained, but be careful. There is a memorial for someone who fell. Enjoy the view, but stay clear of the edge.
  • You can see quite a bit of this waterfall from the road, but to truly appreciate it hike up the trail to the bridge which crosses in front of the waterfall. It's a beautiful hike and a truly beautiful waterfall up close. If you have time, go further up the trail to Fairy Falls. It's a gorgeous hike (pun intended). You won't regret it!
  • Definitely worth the short walk up the path for the first falls alone. It's fairly steep but only .2 miles and very pretty all year round. Opt to go another steep half mile for some gorge views and the upper part of the falls. Head in for Fairy Falls or to take the full 4.8m loop.
  • This was a great stop off of the "Historic Columbia River Highway" for yet another beautiful waterfall. Bonus: The Picnic Area near the parking also has a clean bathroom!
  • Very nice set of falls for a quick stop. The falls are right off the road, so no trails to hike. Very pretty.
