DirectionsFrom Portland, take I-84 to exit 28. Take a left on the old highway until you come to Wahkeena Falls. If you are coming from the east, take exit 35, past Multnomah Falls, to the parking lot below Wahkeena Falls.
The trail starts out paved for around the first mile of the hike, switchbacking to the base of Wahkeena Falls and crossing the creek over a scenic bridge. After .4 miles, the perdition trail branches to the left (closed due to storm damage during the trip, Jan 1999) which leads to Multnomah Falls. Ignore this trail, and continue switch-backing up the side of the hill. When you reach the top of the hill, viewpoint trails lead off to the left and right, but continue straight, crossing the creek, and entering a cool, narrow canyon. Soon after leaving the canyon, the trail switchbacks to Fairy Falls, a small but nice waterfall. Shortly after the waterfall, the trail intersects another trail to the left. Ignoring this fork, continue straight to an intersection at 1.6 miles. Take the trail to the right, which soon leads to Wahkeena Spring, a little pool on the right side of the trail. At 3.1 miles, ignore the side trail to Foxglove Way and continue on to a nice campground, complete with a picnic table. You can even follow the creek down the hill for a little ways to another small waterfall. From the campsite, Angels Rest is only another mile. We turned around at Angels Rest and returned the same way we came, but it is possible to hike another 2.2 miles to the intersection of exit 28 and the old highway and just have somebody pick you up.
