    How do you find the spring? Is it on a map? I went hiking on the Multnomah Falls trail and couldn't find the spring. Thanks!

      they have maps at the base of the mountain that indicate the spring.  The spring is at the very top of the mountain on the 3 milk hike loop

    You have to hike up Wahkeena Falls (west of Multnomah) if you go up Multnomah you have to circle over to Wahkeena — there are signs once you get to the top (past the top of Multnomah Falls

    That’s a long way to have to go for fresh drinking water, then packing it back down…

    A faster and more direct route is to take the Wahkenna trail, then get on the trail to Angels rest, its about a few hundred feet up this trail.
    I always drink from this spring, and its great,
    !!!
