Oregon Wah Gwin Gwin Falls

Added by Hannah Kemp

208 foot tall waterfall by the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River.

This tall waterfall can only be seen from above. In order to see the waterfall from the bottom of the falls, you would either need to be on a boat or go along the railroad tracks (not recommended). There is easy parking at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. There is a small bridge that goes directly over the falls and you can also view the falls from the side over the stone wall.
