    Wahclella Falls

    Of all the waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge i believe this to be the most scenic in the beauty of the canyon it has carved. At approximately 120 feet (36 m) it is not extremely tall by Columbia Gorge standards but the area beneath this fall is absolutely spectacular. Their is also a seasonal stream called East Fork Falls which feeds the falls from the top of the gorge.
    Tanner Creek has carved a canyon which has left several large boulders which have been covered in moss. When hiking to the falls a long footbridge (~60 feet or 18 m) crosses Tanner Creek and has two large beams which support it. I found that interesting but the trail ahead is much more interesting.
    After having been in a dark forest for most of the hike you become exposed after the bridge and the scene unfolding before you looks like the home of elves and all kinds of fairy tale characters. I could easily spend a few hours at this location just marveling at the beauty of this gorge.

    Directoins:
    After Passing Munra Falls proceed another .3 miles (.5 km) to the base of the falls.

    Munra Falls Bridge

    Munra Falls is a very pretty waterfall. It suffers from one main logistical problem however. It lies only feet from a foot bridge and from it's base travels only a few feet into the Tanner Creek. These two problems make the falls very difficult to appreciate and also difficult to get a good view of.
    At only 35 feet (10 m) it is no surprise that these falls get very little attention and especially since the are on the same trail system as the brilliant Wahclella Falls. They are however a very pleasant stop along the way.

    Directoins:
    From the Trail Head off exit 40 on I-84 hike .2 miles (.3 km) to a bridge over the creek.
