Hike Description

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. There is a small amount of climbing with a summit in the middle. Consider combining this hike with the Upper McCord Creek Falls Hike.
