Multnomah-Wahkeena loop - Nov 24, 2018

Post by pablo » November 24th, 2018, 5:55 pm

Just a heads up, get there early or do the weekday thing as the number of parking spaces has been reduced at both M-Falls and Wahkeena. The 25' restriction to the trail is in force.

Where did all the people go?

So much for the #400 to Horsetail, no more Elevator Shaft.

Right now the trail from Larch Mtn Trail to Wahkeena looks abandoned, a few thousand pairs of boots will fix that. Kind of neat to walk through.

Nice new bridge over Wahkeena Creek

Thanks for first pics!

Wow, that "trail"... I wasn't expecting it to be so overgrown, but then I remember the initial assessment a year ago said that bit was still in quite good condition, so I guess it hasn't been touched much.

That's some bridge. Raised in anticipation of debris coming through as trees and what not continue to fall, I suppose.
