Trail Description Driving Directions
Trail Alert, Nov 15, 2017: Trail closed due to Eagle Creek fire that started on Sept. 2. We anticipate this trail will be closed at least until summer 2018.
This trail heads up Tanner Creek from the Wahclella Falls Trailhead. At the small dam used by the Bonneville Fish Hatchery, the trail narrows to a single tread, and leads to a bridge taking you over Munra Falls. The trail then begins to climb up the east side of the canyon. There aren't any cliffs here, but there are some steep drop-offs, so keep a close watch on your little ones. After a flight of stairs, you'll come to a fork in the trail. The end of the trail is a loop, so you'll end up hiking both sides. Taking the lower path, you'll find great views as you approach Wahclella Falls, dropping down the mountain through a couple of switchbacks to the lower bridge. At the head of the canyon, you'll pass through a bit of a grotto with a full view of Wahclella Falls. Past Wahclella Falls, the trail gains a bit of elevation and loops back toward the trailhead. When you reach the earlier trail junction, continue straight and head back to your car.
