Trail shared by Eric Ashley

A dirt road providing access to Dry Creek Falls

Eric Ashley

Features River/Creek · Views · Waterfall

Be aware of possible vehicle traffic as you run. Research shows that while this service road may be open to vehicles, it's often deeply muddy on the north side.

Description

This service road provides easy access to Dry Creek Falls both from Cascade Locks and from the Pacific Crest Trail. Starting at the Mount Hood National Forest boundary on Dry Creek Road, park your car and begin the steady climb on doubletrack to the junction with the PCT. Continue across the junction, trekking further uphill until you reach the trail's end near Dry Creek Falls.

Cute trail up by the creek, turned it into a loop by returning in the PCT and cutting down the powerline road.
