A decently long but simple hike past multiple waterfalls that leads to a view of the major OR/WA mountains.

Overview

Features: Birding — River/Creek — Views — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Family Friendly: Overall, a long but flat trail with the steepest part of the trail at Multnomah Falls.

Description

This is a long trail to a beautiful view of the major Oregon and Washington Mountains. The trail has a steady incline once you get past the Multnomah Falls Trail and is very well laid out and simple to follow. It's not a very crowded trail once you get past Multnomah Falls. You'll hike by multiple streams for about half of the hike with multiple waterfalls near the beginning. It takes around 4-5 hours to complete so bring plenty of water and food. At the top of Larch Mt. you'll get a clear view of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Jefferson. It is not too difficult of a hike and well worth the views!

Wet and narrow trails. Make sure to wear proper shoes and watch your steps. Could twist an ankle on these paths. 6.7mi

I hiked up and back down, making it about a 13 mile hike. The hike up is incredible. My favorite part is Chipmunk Rock. You'll know it when you see... 13mi
