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
