One of many projects completed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, the McCord Creek Trail leads up to a pair of the Columbia River Gorge’s most dramatic, accessible, and yet somehow lesser-known waterfalls. The lower section of the trail visits the 213-foot Elowah Falls and its mossy, boulder-filled amphitheater. A fork in the trail ascends to Upper McCord Creek Falls, a photogenic 64-foot twin cascade.
