  1. I’m so sad about the Gorge. I haven’t been there since I was a kid, but I was planning to hike Eagle Creek in the next couple of years, but I guess that will be put on hold.

    • I wouldn’t let it get you too down. If there is one place that will regenerate faster than others, it is the Gorge. It won’t be the same but it will still be beautiful. The waterfalls will still be there and it will still be worth hiking. Also, for what it is worth, you can hike the 10 Falls at Silver Falls State Park. It is grand!

      • One of the ideas for a new book I have been kicking around is a collection of the best waterfall hikes in the west. Silver Falls is one of two from Oregon (alas, Eagle Creek being the other). There really is nothing else like it, with the opportunity to hike behind multiple large waterfalls. Here is video of my wife and kids on the trail behind Middle North Falls. It is spectacular!
