See if you can spot the spawning salmon on one of the iconic hikes of the Columbia River Gorge.
Distance: 4.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 600 feet
Leader: Wendell Wood
Location: Columbia River Gorge
Eagle Creek is one of the most well-known and well-used trails in the Columbia Gorge—and for good reason. With spawning salmon in the fall, breathtaking waterfalls year round, and wildflowers aplenty in the spring, the Eagle Creek trail is an Oregon gem.
We'll be keeping our eyes out for spawning salmon at the very beginning of this hike (one of the most reliable spots in Oregon to see these miraculous migraters). We'll also take a jaunt down to one of the most impressive views in Oregon - Punchbowl Falls.
While we hike, you’ll learn a little about salmon ecology and the role this remarkable species plays in replenishing the forest. Space is limited to 15 participants.
