Gorge Hike: Wahkeena Falls to Multnomah Falls

We got up early on Father’s Day and took a hike in the Gorge. It was a beautiful day for a hike.  Plus, there were Father’s Day hikers to spot.

The plan was to start at Wahkeena Falls, hike up and across and come down by Multnomah Falls.  It was a good plan.IMG_5580

Either J or C, or possibly both, had recently been here.IMG_5592

Sadly, my camera battery was near death and I didn’t have the spare with me, so pictures were rationed.

Matt wanted me to take this picture.  I obliged.IMG_5593

There were a million people at Multnomah Falls.  There were a million people celebrating Father’s Day.  Here’s one family right here.IMG_5595

It was a good hike and my legs were uniformly sore for the next few days.

  1. Looks like a very nice hike indeed! Do you know what the elevation was? Loved all the pics of the falls, and the one you obliged Matt by taking.

    Now I kind of want a cookie as big as my face.

    1. My book does not tell me elevation gain. It was a level 2 (of 5) hike and a level 9 (of 10) on the beauty scale. Since we wandered off-track, I would guess we bumped it up to a level 3 on the strenuous scale.
