AOA Trip to Wahclella Falls and Bonneville Fish Hatchery

Join us for a two mile, round trip, hike to the beautiful Wahclella Falls and Bonneville Fish Hatchery. Bring your lunch for a picnic at the Hatchery followed by a self-guided tour around the grounds. Inside the hatchery, we will view the various stages of growth of the fish in their natural setting. Please wear trail appropriate shoes. Hiking sticks are recommended as a portion of our trek is uphill and includes steps. We have six hiking sticks available for use but they must be reserved in advance.
