This hike begins at the Wahclella Falls parking lot. Just walk a brief
distance back toward the freeway and you will see the trail on your right taking off up
behind the parking lot.
Follow the trail for about a mile and after crossing under power
lines you will come to a service road which you need to follow south upstream for about
another mile. You will then come to the Tanner Ridge/Butte Trail head. Follow Trail #401
for about 2.2 miles and 1500' in elevation later you will come to a junction with the
Wauna Point Trail #401D.
Bear to your right and continue a more gentle climb up Tanner Ridge.
In a little over 2 miles you will come to the junction of Trail #448, which descends back
down toward Tanner Creek. You could use this trail as a return loop of sorts. Anyway,
continue a bit further on Trail #401 and you will come to the junction for Dublin Lake.
Follow Trail #401B down to Dublin Lake. This little jewel is worth the hike and there
are a few legal camp areas to be found around the lake.
How to get there:
Wahclella Falls/Toothrock Trailhead: From I-84, take Exit #40/Bonneville Dam. Turn south at
the stop sign and drive about 100 feet. Stay to the right, taking you to Wahclella Falls trailhead.
Left takes you to Toothrock trailhead.
As with Munra Point, you need to walk back towards the freeway to the road that heads east to the
Toothrock Trailhead. Just as you begin to walk in that direction, you will see the trailhead
sign to Tanner Butte. This is the trail you need to get you to Dublin Lake.
