Notes

Early spring offers less leaves and more views. Colors are more saturated from the misty rain. But many trails are not yet open. Summer has more foliage and some views are more limited. Autumn offers the fall colors. Waterfalls in the Gorge are too numerous to name them all. Some you can see from the highway and crowded parking areas. Others you have to hike the well-groomed trails. Pictured here are Latourel Falls (handicapped accessible), Fairy Falls (Wahkeenah trail), and Triple Falls. The final photo is Metlako Falls from the Eagle Creek Trail further east along I-84--one of many falls along that trail.
