eagle creek


Wow, what a beautiful hike! Our group of Dog Mountain hikers reunited (plus a couple new faces) to explore the Eagle Creek trail, which I’ve always heard much of but had never actually experienced. After Dog Mountain, we all agreed that Eagle Creek seemed tame—but what it lacked in steepness, it made up for in distance. It was at least six miles each way to our spectacular Tunnel Falls destination.

One of the most beautiful spots on the trail was Punchbowl Falls, about two miles up and hidden down a steep spur off the main trail. The water ran so cold and clear and the falls were just incredible.

And finally, Tunnel Falls. Have you ever walked behind a waterfall? It’s…wow.
