Day Hikes  2013 - The Other Eagle Creek  [42]

2013 - The Other Eagle Creek

Mid-June day hike to Eagle Creek. Not the well-known Columbia Gorge creek, but what some hiking guides refer to as the The Other Eagle Creek. Located southwest of Mount Hood in the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, this hike has no spectacular mountain vistas, flower filled alpine meadows, or spectacular waterfalls. What it does offer is a great deep-forest hike with lush undergrowth, some very large trees, and best of all just possibly complete solitude. In our case we did the hike on a Saturday and only encountered a single group of two hikers.
