It is sad when someone dies on the trail. In this article, I'm trying to picture an 80-foot drop one mile from the freeway on the PCT and I'm thinking Eagle Creek Trail at the cables downstream from the former Metlako Falls viewpoint. Neither Herman creek nor Benson Plateau via Dry Creek fit the topography I am running though my memory. In the cabled area, it is quite understandable that jogging on the wet basalt could lead to a mis-step, I know I have had issues on the basalt further upstream at High Bridge and also at Blue Grouse Falls.
