If You Haven’t Hiked This Waterfall Trail Since It Reopened, It Should Be On Your Bucket List
The devastating Eagle Creek Fire of 2017 burned 50,000 acres in the Columbia River Gorge. Oregonians were heartbroken as we watched one of our most cherished places burn, and once the fire was contained we assessed our losses and tried to make sense of the tragedy.
Many of the gorge’s trail were closed due to heavy damage, and some still remain closed indefinitely, but with the hard work of members of the Pacific Crest Trail Association, Trailkeepers of Oregon, Friends of the Columbia River Gorge, and many other volunteers, as well as the U.S. Forest Service, several trails opened last summer.
Here’s one of the trails that was restored, and if you haven’t visited it yet, it should be on your bucket list.
