I got out for a hike Sunday with Lori and Becky. Neither of them had visited Nesika or seen the Christmas Ornament Trail. These are a couple of special hidden places in the Gorge. Our route was to go up Wahkeena Creek then connect over to Larch Mt. Trail that runs next to Multnomah Creek. Off of this trail we would take an unmarked trail up to Multnomah Basin where Nesika and the Ornament trail hide. After having lunch on the porch a Nesika and hanging some ornaments on the Christmas Ornament trail we returned by Larch Mt. Trail to Multnomah Lodge and the car. It was a nice sunny day and we did about 7.5 miles and 1800 ft gain.
