Wahkeena-Vista Point Trail Junction

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Sign at Vista Point Junction (Steve Hart)
Vista Point Trail Junction (Steve Hart)



This is a trail junction near the upper end of Wahkeena Canyon. When heading up to Devil's Rest or out towards Multnomah Creek you have the option of taking either of the two options: Continuing up the Wahkeena Trail - switch-backing to the right, or the Vista Point Trail #419 - forking uphill to the left. The two options they are roughly the same distance and nearly identical (gross) elevation gain. They meet back up again at Wahkeena-Devil's Rest-Vista Point Trail Junction. If you are heading out to Wahkeena Springs or Angel's Rest you'll want to continue on Wahkeena Trail.
