Catherine Creek is an area of unique natural beauty and is of great botanical significance. Over ninety species of wildflowers can be found in the area, from grass widow, which blankets the ground as early as February, to western ladies’ tresses, which may bloom into July. The Catherine Creek Universal Access Trail offers dramatic views of the Columbia River and Mount Hood. Weather on this south-facing drainage is much sunnier and drier than the western Gorge and can be quite windy. Dress appropriately, and be aware that you will encounter no restrooms, water, or garbage facilities. The paved, universal access trail offers two levels of difficulty for wheelchairs.
