Trail Description Driving Directions

From the Wahclella Falls parking lot, walk back toward the freeway and look for the trail on your right, which takes off behind the parking lot. Follow the trail for about a mile, cross under power lines, and you will come to a service road.  Follow south and upstream for about another mile. Once you come to the Tanner Ridge/Butte Trailhead, follow Trail #401 for about 2.2 miles and 1500 feet in elevation until you come to a junction with the Wauna Point Trail #401D.  Bear right and continue up a more gentle climb to Tanner Ridge. In about 2 miles you will come to the junction with Trail #448, which descends back down toward Tanner Creek, and can be used to complete a loop. Continue to Trail #401 and you will come to the junction for Dublin Lake. Follow Trail #401B down to Dublin Lake. Camping is allowed at the lake.
