Eagle Creek Trail

Eagle Creek Trail Bridge

Eagle Creek Trail Bridge

The Eagle Creek Trail winds and climbs 6 miles (12 miles round trip) along Eagle Creek, on the way passing as many as twelve GORGEous waterfalls. Unfortunately, I am not in good enough shape yet to walk it. And it goes along the cliff face; me and my vertigo haven't quite got what it takes to traverse it. So for now, the bridge and wildflowers are about all you're going to get.

The bridge is one of the original Columbia River Highway bridges, and the only one faced with local stone. It certainly looks solid! It is still in use, leading to a picnic area and a viewpoint overlooking Bonneville Dam.

And here are some wildflowers found at the Eagle Creek trailhead:
