Wahkeena | by RyanManuel

Wahkeena is a 242 ft fall along the Columbia Gorge, just one of over 70 falls along the Gorge. Very easy to get to and only .2 mile hike up. This is one of the main falls along the History Columbia Gorge Highway, there's a large parking lot and the trail is very well maintained including about 1/2 of it asphalt paved. There's also a beautiful cascade falls below this that I have some pics of but the shrubs are largely overgrown and it doesn't make for great composition. Next to Horsetail, Multnomah Falls, this is probably the third easiest waterfall to get to.
