This hike starts out on an old access road, where you’ll pass a dam used by the fish hatchery. Not too far past the dam you’ll cross a bridge that passes right in front of Munra Falls. The trail follows Tanner Creek and a short distance after the waterfall and starts to climb. The trail is pretty rocky and parts have stairs built into it.

You’ll come to a fork in the trail, both options take you to the same place, we decided to go right. You switchback downhill and cross a bridge that takes you to a slide area. Just past the slide area you will see Wahclella Falls. Continue the loop and head back the way you came in.
