Eagle Creek to High Bridge

TOTAL MILES 6.4 miles ELEVATION GAIN: 840 ft 
PACE: Moderate 2.0
DIFFICULTY RATING: Slightly Difficult due to length 
ESTIMATED HIKING TIME: 3.5
PERMITS: NW Forest Pass for Drivers

CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 70 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $7.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. 

 Eagle Creek is one of my favorites!  It offers beautiful scenery and many waterfalls.   We will begin this hike at the Eagle Creek Trailhead…and set a moderate pace as the trail climbs gently with overviews of the rushing creek… along the way we will pass Metlacko Falls…then the popular Punchbowl Falls… Next up is Loowit just before reaching High Bridge.   We will break for a late lunch  before retracing our steps to the trailhead.

We will go rain or shine.

Please note that there is a MANUAL waiting list for this hike. What this means is that if a spot opens up everyone on the waiting list will automatically receive an e-mail notifying them of the opening. The first person (whether on the waiting list or not) to RSVP gets the spot.

What to bring: • Sturdy hiking boots/shoes with at least one change of socks 
• Two or three light layers of clothing that can be adjusted or removed as necessary (NO COTTON!!!) 
• Rain gear • Safety whistle, preferably on a cord around your neck (highly recommended) 
• The 10 essentials* • Trekking poles (never a bad idea) 
• Lunch, snacks and plenty of water *Navigation, Sun protection, Insulation, Illumination, First Aid, Fire, Repair Kit/Tools, Nutrition, Hydration, Emergency Shelter. For a more detailed description, check out “The Ten Essentials” on the Portland Hiking Meetup Group’s FILES page.
