A Visit To This Stunning Hidden Waterfall In Oregon Will Change Your Life
Hiding in the Columbia River Gorge is the beautiful Elowah Falls, one of
the most enchanting, graceful waterfalls in Oregon. This 213-foot waterfall can be found at the end of a gorgeous 1.6-mile trail that winds through lush forest scenery. You’ll never forget a trip to this amazing place.
Starting at the John B Yeon State Park Trailhead (located 2 miles east of Exit 35 on Interstate 84), the hike to Elowah Falls is short, easy, and positively magical.
The hike is 1.6 miles round trip, and winds through a lush green forest all the way to the waterfall.
You'll walk past huge evergreens, along a fern-covered ridge, and then take a couple of steep switchbacks to reach McCord Creek....
Soon, the stunning Elowah Falls will come into view.
This spectacular waterfall is over 200 feet tall, and pours gracefully into an amazing, moss-covered basalt basin.
You can walk right up to the base of the massive waterfall, and feel its cool mist blow against your skin.
In the winter, Elowah Falls is often covered in glittering ice. It's a beautiful sight, but beware: the trail can be incredibly slippery.
Here's a photo of the falls from downstream.
This magnificent waterfall is out of this world.
