Gorton Creek Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Gorton Creek Falls (Jamey Pyles)
Wide view of the falls (Jamey Pyles)


Gorton Creek Falls is a 115 foot waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge on Gorton Creek. It falls in two tiers. The first is about thirty feet and the second is about 75-80 feet tall. Both are in plunge form. The falls is tucked away in a beautiful canyon with high walls on all sides. This is good for photographers, as it is in the shade for most of the day. The only angle that doesn't hide the upper tier is from head on, but there are many other cool angles to explore to the right and left.
