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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time, money, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes, so we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time payment. Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation and it's free!

Regardless, thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!
