Elowah Falls

Posted by bmedia on Wednesday, August 3, 2016

This beautiful 3.5-mile out-and-back type hike ends with a gorgeous view of the beautiful Elowah waterfall. Come spend a lovely summer day in the Columbia River Gorge with this hike!

At Elowah Falls, McCord Creek crashes into a huge amphitheater made up of several distinct lava flows. This is a fairly easy hike, appropriate for most beginners, leading to a 289-foot waterfall. There is a small amount of climbing involved, with a summit in the middle of the hike. Follow the trail from the parking area up to junction, veer left to lower trail.
