Wahkeena-Angels-Devils loop hike

This loop hike starts at the Wahkeena Falls trailhead, then takes the Angels Rest Trail to Wahkeena Spring and on to Angels Rest. There were¬†super gusty winds, so we didn’t go out to the Angels Rest point. We stopped for a break at the Devils Rest trail junction, then continued to Devils Rest and then back to the Wahkeena and Vista Point trails. Total distance:¬†8.3 miles with 2,729 ft elevation gain
