Description

Get a good workout on this classic Gorge-view trail close to Portland. Starting in a fern-filled forest, the trail climbs uphill for 0.6 mile before reaching the top of Coopey Falls, a 150 to 175 foot horsetail waterfall, and the footbridge crossing the creek.

Continuing on, the trail begins to switchback uphill for 1.6 miles through a fire-scarred area before reaching the ridge crest. Turn left at a junction to a spectacular gorge viewpoint. Use extreme caution at the steep cliff edge. Continue east 2 miles to Wahkeena Springs and Wahkeena Trail #420. Average trail grade is 10-15%
