Follow boulder-strewn Tanner Creek to thundering Wahclella Falls on this short but memorable hike in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. (Members Only)
Distance: 2.0 miles
Elevation Gain: 222 feet
Leader: Rob Klavins
Location: Columbia River Gorge
With the greatest concentration of waterfalls in one location in the entire continental United States, if you love cascading water, the Columbia Gorge is the place for you. Many of most elegant and breathtaking waterfalls in the Gorge are just a short hike into the wildlands that stretch south from the Columbia River.
Wahclella Falls, just one mile from the trailhead, is a great spot to bring the entire family to see the power and beauty of white water streaming down a black basalt backdrop. The Wachlella Falls area was recently protected as part of the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009 and will be safeguarded for future generations as Wilderness.
(Please note: there must be at least one adult for every two kids).
