Hike Description

This hike starts you at the Bridge of the Gods trailhead for the PCT and takes you under i84, across the powerlines up up the Pacific Crest trail for a ways. After a few limited viewpoints you come across a footbridge. Follow the spur trail up the right-hand-side of the creek until you reach the falls.

Although it's called Dry Creek Falls, it does not run dry - even in the warmest months of summer. There is evidence of some damming appartus here, used to provide water to the town of Cascade Locks Oregon.
