This is a must do hike in the Gorge, but after a fresh snowfall it's even more breathtaking.

The wooden bridges, Munra Falls, beautiful canyon walls, and the mossy grotto at the end of the canyon itself would be enough of a draw for this hike, but you round the last corner and 65 foot Wahclella Falls comes in full view.

The big snow covered river rocks looked like giant marshmallows, and Wahclella fully shined as the main attraction. It was truly a winter wonderland.

Normally, this is easily a family friendly hike, but I wouldn't recommend bringing small children in the winter. The sudden drop offs in the canyon combined with snow makes the ground extra slippery.

Beautiful hike along the river with several cool waterfalls to checkout along the way. The trail was a little narrow and a few trees had fallen in the path, one of the bridges had also been partly washed out. Other then a few obstacles along the way this was an enjoyable easy hike with great views.

Awesome Hike!
