Walclella Falls


OregonHiker.org in their field put it very nicely as “This is one of the must-do easy hikes in the Columbia River Gorge, a sort of mini-Eagle Creek without the distance. The trail reopened in August 2019 after a two-year closure following the Eagle Creek Fire. While vegetation and trees along the route are recovering, frequent slides have turned the hike into an out and back excursion rather than a lollipop loop. The outing is at its most pleasant from fall through spring, but even on hot summer days, the grotto-like amphitheater at Wahclella Falls offers a cool respite where day hikers often tarry for long periods.” They give a full description at OregonHiker.org website including a map.
