Catherine Creek

Catherine Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Sometimes you want a wildflower hike that can be done early in the year that reflects a long winter of no walking activity of any kind. In short: a trail with very little up, not much distance, and plenty to see. Welcome to Catherine Creek.

Being on the less wet side of the Gorge, Catherine Creek dries up early in the spring, and you can expect the hills to be brown and most of the flowers to be gone by June. Not that there is a lack of things to see during the summer—just less. Whenever you’re in the Columbia River country, this is a great place to stop and break the road warrior monotony of travel or take a quick hike to stretch your legs."
