Photograph Wahkeena Falls

Added by Eric Bennett

Just off the highway in the Columbia River Gorge, take a short walk to these stunning falls.

This Waterfall is located along the Colombia River Gorge and is surrounded by many other, much more trafficked waterfalls so it gets a lot fewer visitors. This is a beautiful spot to relax at, take photos, and get away from some of the crowds. The bottom of the falls end right at the parking lot and it's just a short hike up to the bridge. From there, you can continue hiking up to Fairy Falls or Multnomah Falls.

Calming and pretty

My girlfriend is a waterfall chaser and we love to sit out here in the morning. We’ve done yoga here before! Which as weird as it sounds was kinda amazing. I recommend!!
