It seems as though the Columbia River Gorge has an endless supply of astonishing waterfall hikes. Because there are so many great hikes in this one area, it's easy to miss a few.
left on trail No. 400. This trail stays nice and level as it follows the Columbia River from a distance. After a half mile, we turned right and hiked another three quarters of a mile to see Upper McCord Creek Falls with its double, 60 foot cascades. The trail towers high above the creek on a ledge that was blasted from the surrounding cliffs. It was a very cold and foggy morning, so thousands of glistening icicles ornamented the rocks just above our heads.
Directions: Drive East on I 84 and take exit No. 35. Turn left at the stop sign and then take an immediate right onto the frontage road and drive for two miles to the trailhead on the right.
The trail gently rolls through the lush, green forest for another 1.6 miles. Pay attention for temporary signs around Moffett Creek as the trail is undergoing some repair work.
Munra Point worth the effort after short hike to Gorge falls

We began our hike just to the left of a strange looking, old water tank that was leaking profusely. Within a quarter mile, we came to an intersection but stayed Puma Gray

We returned to trail No. 400, and in another half mile, I slipped and fell on some icy rocks just below Elowah Falls. This extraordinary 228 foot waterfall continuously sprays water across the Puma Runners For Women
A friend recently showed me the little known trail to 1,850 foot Munra Point on an icy winter day. What a great nine mile adventure it was with two gorgeous waterfalls and an exciting short climb.
After Moffett Creek, watch for a less traveled trail to your right marked by a sign that says, "trail not maintained." If you squint real hard, you will decipher the word "Munra" is scratched on the bottom of this inadequate sign. In a third of a mile, you will see a faint Y intersection. Follow the trail to the right and continue up this draw beside a quiet stream. It does get quite steep here and even switches back a few times.
Well after a mile, the hike turns to more of a rock scramble. There are several false summits and ridge lines along the way, so don't get your hopes up too soon. At one point, there was a rope that someone left behind to assist our ascent over some larger rocks. From here, follow the craggy knifelike ridge the rest of the way to the pinnacle of Munra Point for a phenomenal panoramic view of the Columbia River Gorge and its surrounding Puma Runners
