This is a great hike in the eastern side of the Columbia River Gorge, but unfortunately, the Eagle Creek Fire passed through this area in late Summer of 2017 that burned over 40,000 acres in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and countless miles of trails.

The trail climbs steeply at first, then flattens out some as it follows high above the Herman Creek canyon. It passes through a semi-lush rainforest environment for most of its route, save for a few dry and grassy areas, where you will pass through Oregon White Oaks.

Once the Forest Service considers it safe to enter post-fire next season, they will hopefully reopen the trail for hiking. When hiking post-fire, be cautious around burned dead snags and unstable soil. They can be potentially hazardous on windy days or during/after a rainstorm.
