Dry Creek Falls

Dry Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"There is no shortage of fine waterfalls within the Columbia River gorge national Scenic area. Nor is there any shortage of waterfall admirers scouring the trails on any given day. However, at Dry Creek Falls there’s a good chance that you’ll get to stand in awe without your fellow Columbia gorge travelers. One of the best kept secrets in the gorge, the hike to Dry Creek Falls holds hidden delights on this quiet stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail."

"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."
