If you are traveling the PCT, and willing to take alternates, this one is highly recommended. If you are just looking for a day hike and are in the Portland area, it would be hard to beat the 13 mile round trip up to Twister Falls. This trail was constructed in 1910, and is probably not reproducible today: using dynamite in wilderness areas is frowned upon.
|Loowit Falls drops about 90 feet into a pool just above Eagle Creek. This fall is on the far side of the creek but is near the High Bridge that crosses the creek and there is a way trail to the base of the falls.|
|This is a sample of what portions of the trail are like. The trail is blasted out of the cliff and is visible to the top left of the picture. The creek is flowing over 100 feet below the trail, and nearly straight down.|
