Gorton Creek Falls Hike

This beautiful fall is a major waterfall of Gorton Creek is one for those looking for a bit of an adventure. The beautiful hike along the Columbia River Gorge leads you to an amazing 115 foot secluded waterfall, as well as a very photogenic creek scene below. The falls are accsable from the Day Use area at the Wyeth Campground, about few miles east of Cascade Locks on the south side of Interstate 84. From the parking area around a half a mile to a small bedrock dam which creates a very pretty 10 foot waterfall which serves as the water source for the Wyeth Campground. The creek gets cliffed in at this point and the scramble up the scenic canyon becomes more difficult. After scrambling directly up the stream for about 100 feet, the path resumes on the left and climbs steeply up to the base of the falls. In the summer when the creek is running low, traveling directly up the stream is a much easier task, but no less of a workout.
