Tea at Wahkeena Springs

Hike to Wahkeena Springs in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Cold and clear, It gushes out of the ground in a grove of ancient cedar trees. This is one of the most perfect places to brew tea and bask in nature that I’ve ever come across.

About the event

Wahkeena Springs gushes out of the ground, cold and clear, in a grove of old cedar trees. This jewel lies at the end of a 3 mile trail in a lush cleft stacked with mossy boulders deep in the forest of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area  just 18 miles drive from Portland, Or.

This is one of the most perfect places to brew tea and bask in nature that I’ve ever come across.

We’ll meet at the Wahkeena Falls Parking area on the old highway at 10 am.

The Trail

The roughly paved trail is quite steep for the first half but we will take it slow so we can really experience the beautiful  and unique character of the Gorge and the views across the Columbia River. As we ascend, we’ll cross over old stone and wooden bridges, breathe the mist of Fairy Falls, move through the vertical walls of basalt, and marvel at the resilience of life after a forest fire went through the area a few years ago.

The arrival to the springs is a lovely change as it is nearly flat with soft places to sit in the shade of the old cedars. A perfect place for tea and a picnic.

I’ll prepare 3 different teas for you using the spring’s water and provide a few snacks. Feel free to bring additional food if you like.

Ability rating: 3 and 4. Walking polls may be helpful. Link to ability rating description
