Gorton Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A one- or two-day backpack climb up around Nick Eaton Ridge, with great views, dark forest corridors, and a clear, freshwater wilderness destination. Gorton Creek Trail passes through a forest of old growth Douglas-fir trees and offers multiple views of the Gorge and the cascades to the North. For day hiking, the best route is the hike to Indian Point."
