We stopped for a picnic lunch at Wahkeena Falls Picnic Area at the base of Wahkeena Falls.
There are plenty of picnic tables and climbing trees! Also, we notice lots of parking. I don't think people realize there is parking below the street by this picnic area.
From the road, Wahkeena Falls doesn't look like much. That's because what you see from the road is really Wahkeena Creek.
If you cross the walking bridge across the creek, you'll find the paved trail up to the Falls above.
And it's such a short hike that it shouldn't be missed!
Fees: none, free parking
What to bring: a picnic
Length of hike: .4 miles, roundtrip. Longer if you want to continue beyond Wahkeena Falls.
