It seems everybody has hiked at least some of Eagle Creek; it’s easily one of the classic and most popular hikes in Oregon. That’s because this hike’s easy to get to, easy to hike, and traverses a deep, forested canyon filled with waterfalls. With that in mind, start early, or go on a weekday, so you won’t have to share the trail with the rest of Oregon.

great trail overall. great roads to get there so no need for four wheel drive. hike was very quiet, met one other group. forest was beautiful and pristine, views from the top were spectecular. a few trees down along the trail but that just made the trail more interesting.
