Eagle Creek Trail: Hike to Unforgettable Adventure

The 13.1-mile (one way) trek up Columbia River Gorge on the Eagle Creek Trail is iconic–and popular–for a reason: You can’t get this anywhere else. You’ll spend half the time in thick, mossy rainforest and half on vertiginous ledges blasted straight out of the wall of the gorge, this trail is one of the most-visited in the region, but the experience is well worth the crowds. You just can’t dream this kind of landscape up.

The Route:
Start at the Eagle Creek Trailhead, following a wide and well-marked trail above Eagle Creek. Pass into a grotto festooned with maidenhair ferns, then head into the basalt cliffs of the Columbia River Gorge on the first real section of ledge. Cable handrails provide a handhold for less secure hikers. (This section of trail can be quite narrow, so be cautious when passing other visitors.) The first major waterfalls come after a second cliffside trail section: 82-foot Metlako Falls at mile 1.3 and 100-foot Sorenson Falls at mile 1.6. Metlako Falls is on Eagle Creek, while Sorenson Falls drops from the east rim of the gorge. Read more…
