Wahclella Falls

Wahclella Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Wahclella Falls receives far fewer visitors than the average Columbia River Gorge waterfall, perhaps due to lack of stature and visibility, as well as length of hike. The second and most visible 60-foot drop of the falls occupies a peaceful grotto at the end of a deep canyon. Although hikers feeling the need for more exercise often overlook it, Wahclella rates as high as any hike in the area in terms of beauty, if not distance.

This easy semi-loop allows hikers of almost any age and aptitude the opportunity to explore and enjoy the canyon’s many attributes. The trail starts alongside Tanner Creek on a roadbed until it ends near a small dam that diverts water to a fish hatchery downstream. From here the trail begins to head upstream, but not before a bridge takes you within arm’s reach of another 68-foot waterfall, Munra Falls. Munra looks as much like a water-park slide as it does a naturally occurring cascade, and it will often give you a light misting in late winter and spring."
