Took this hike up to see the water falls. Mind you it is all uphill but very much worth the trip and the scenery was outstanding

Beyond the Vista House driving on I-84 heading to Idaho, you see miles and miles of beautiful mountains and scenery.

Just as beautiful as it dangerous. I took 1 mile+ trail to Mcloud falls. Keep in mind... -Its dangerous (steep cliffs on narrow walkways and falling rocks) -If you have fear of heights this may not be for you. -If it rains/rained your legs with get soaked like mine did because you have to walk through wet plants that carry water. -Its litterally all uphill at least a mile. -The views are absolutely stunning and worth it. -Watch where you step there are slugs, snails, snakes and other bugs we encountered. Although, I may debate doing it again due to the danger factor, its one of the most scenic and less traveled trails in the area.
John B Yeon State Scenic Corridor is a beautiful area in the Columbia River Gorge. Elowah Falls and Upper McCord Creek Falls are both along McCord Creek. A landslide has demolished the bridge at the base of Elowah Falls. Wahclella Falls is along Tanner Creek a couple canyons over from McCord Creek.
