“A run to see five waterfalls starting at the largest and ending with the second largest.”— Matthew King
At the top of the main falls, continue along the marked trail which runs alongside the gorgeous, lush, Degobah-esque Multnomah Creek, over a beautiful stone bridge, and past the second waterfall, Dutchman Falls, around the 1.75 mile mark. At the 2 mile mark, you can explore the third waterfall, Wiesendanger Falls.
Continue the trail through a steeper section and continue the climb by taking the Wahkeena Trail #420 through some forested areas. At the 3-mile mark, start your descent by continuing on the Wahkeena Trail #420 which zig-zags over Wahkeena Creek. An alternate route could be Vista Point Trail which meets up with Wahkeena Trail #420 near the aptly name Fairy Falls, the fourth waterfall.
Continue the descent and end the your run at the second largest falls, Wahkeena Falls.
