Trail Description Driving Directions
Trail Alert, Sep 4, 2017: Trail closed due to Eagle Creek wildfire. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5584/ | #eaglecreekfire
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.
