    For me, the untold story (and beautiful surprise) is that above Multnomah Falls is the beautiful creek (duh!) ... AND two more rather significant waterfalls that almost no one has ever heard of. Ecola Falls and Weisendanger Falls. At this time of year, nearly half of the total trail was covered with up to 3 inches of snow.

    This 5.5 mile loop is one of the most magnificent trails that I have been on. I hiked from Wahkeena to Multnomah. The first part of the trail to Lemmon’s overlook (.25 miles) is just a nice walk along to face of the cliff along a dozen switchbacks. After the overlook, the trail goes along the Wahkeena brook crossing the brook with tree bridges. At the third bridge, there is another stunning waterfall (1.mile). After a few more switchbacks there is a opportunity to go directly toward the larch mt. trail or continue up to Wahkeena springs. I have done both. And I highly recommend going to the springs. Continuing up on the Wahkeena trail there is another fork. Go to the right for about 100 yards to the springs, agreat place to take a break (1.9 miles).

    Go back on the trail to the fork aqnd take a right towards the Larch Mt. trail. After an easy mile almost flat hike, there is a fork with signs pointing to Multnomah Falls. The hike is down-hill and can be treacherous. On the trip down the upper Multnomah Falls must be seen to be believed. After the upper falls the trail is paved, easy, full of tourists but still beutiful

    Beautiful hike once you get above the crowded Multnomah Falls overlooks
