Nesika Lodge

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Nesika Lodge, Multnomah Basin (bobcat)
  • Hikes including this location:


Nesika Lodge is the hiker's lodge for the Trails Club of Oregon, founded in 1915. One of the Club's first accomplishments was to construct the Larch Mountain Trail between Multnomah Falls and Sherrard Point. The original Nesika was constructed in 1923; the current stone building, its replacement, was dedicated in 1997. The two dormitory buildings slept up to 60 people. The lodge overlooks the deep Oneonta Creek valley.

The 2017 Eagle Creek Fire engulfed the area around the lodge, incinerating the surrounding forest. Miraculously, the lodge itself sustained only minor damage. However, the two dormitory buildings were burned to the ground as was the main water tank. Most tools, equipment, and supplies were lost in the fire. The generator, a second water tank, and the spring box survived.
