Contrary to its name, Dry Creek Falls flows steadily all year long. From the Bridge of the Gods Trailhead in Cascade Locks, hikers follow the final stretch of the Oregon portion of the Pacific Crest Trail to a lightly visited 75-foot waterfall. The Pacific Crest Trail’s (PCT) home stretch in Oregon is a lush, forested trail that sees mostly thru-hikers during the summer months. Though wonderfully scenic, the rest of the year, the trail rarely entertains visitors compared to other waterfall trails in the Columbia River Gorge. Thus, this hike is a good one for avoiding crowds.
