  Stephen at Wahkeena Falls
by Stephen-KarenConn
 
 

Wahkeena Falls is a spectacular series of several smaller cascades and falls with a total drop of 242 feet. It is known as a "tier falls," with many seperate falls that can be viewed all at once. We took a very pleasant short hike up to and across Wahkeena near it's mid-way point. Here a small footbridge led us across the 15-foot face of the falls, amidst rocks covered with moss and ferns. Only a couple of the tiers can be seen in this photo.

Wahkeena means "most beautiful" in the Yakima Indian language.

Directions: One half mile west of Multonmah Falls, along the Columbia River Gorge Historic Highway.
