  • If this is confusing, it's on the same trail loop as Multnomah falls which you can see reviews for. Any questions, be sure to go to the visitor center and have them answer your questions. They will hi...  read more »
  • Husband and I arrived in the morning. Falls was wonderful. Small crowd, so morning is probably one of the better times to come here. 
  • Had some time before our departing flight so we stopped. Very different than Multnomah Falls. Beautiful in its own way and worth a visit. Parking is limited so keep that in mind. 
  • This is a fantastic hike. There is a good like stretch where you are hiking up along side the water fall. The view is great. There are several other trails that connect with 420. This way if you feel like doing a longer hike that is an option as well.
  • The hiking trail is paved almost all the way to the top which makes for a low stress hike though the trail is quite steep. The hike is less than 2 miles to the lookout (which is beautiful!) and only a half mile to a beautiful of the falls from their base.
  • Beautiful falls. Less crowded than Multnomah. Make it a loop for a gorgeous hike that seems like cheating it's so close to Portland.
  • Great falls with an easy hike, definite mist cool off at base... from 1st overview enjoy the side streams & grab a photo or two... Worth a stop!
  • Today, May 3rd, 2016. Mostly overcast with short periods of sun. My sister and I hiked Wahkeena trail up and over, then down to Multnomah falls overlook and Lodge. everything was do-able but the very rocky trail did give us pain in the feet. Also, It would be great if there were clearer direction signs that included direction and mileage between Wahkeena falls and Multnomah falls/lodge. And I dont mean road mileage, but trail mileage. I had to use Google Maps on my phone to take the correct path at trail intersections. One disappointing trend which we found unacceptable was the litter left behind by fellow hikers. We carried out plastic water bottles, candy wrappers, drink cups and orange peels left behind, or tossed into the woods by others. There needs to be reminders of the "leave no trace" policies which real hikers live by. Stop leaving your trash on our trails and if you can't, stay home! Other than these annoyances , the hike was fantastic and would recommend it.
