Eagle Creek

Eagle Creek Professional Review and Guide

"This trail through the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area leads through a deep, scenic canyon carved by bubbling Eagle Creek and shaded by a canopy of oak, bigleaf maple, and cedar.

Along the route, hikers are rewarded with views of half a dozen cascading waterfalls and a creek perfectly suited for a swim during the hot summer months. Backpackers can hike in and camp at any one of the four established campsites along the first 7.5 miles of the trail—but note that these sites fill up fast. For more solitude, forge ahead 13.3 miles from the Eagle Creek trailhead to camp at Wahtum Lake."

"This trail travels through scenic Eagle Creek Canyon, carved by picturesque Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge. Canyon views. Bridge crossings. This beautiful trail heads up Eagle Creek Canyon and is filled with spectacular scenery and waterfalls.

You’ll begin running at almost creek level but soon the trail begins climbing high above the creek and promises gorgeous scenery around every bend. There are a few precipitous sections on the trail, so watch your footing. Be forewarned that crowds flock to this trail during the summer months. For more solitude try this trail in the fall, when you can enjoy fantastic end-of-season colors. Rest rooms and water are available at the trailhead."
