Punchbowl falls on the Eagle Creek Trail


Eagle Creek is a tributary of the Columbia River in Multnomah and Hood River counties in the U.S. state of Oregon. It cuts through a narrow canyon in its 3,200 feet (980 m) descent to the Columbia River Gorge and is known for its concentration of waterfalls. This is a description of all 13 falls. Eight major falls are on Eagle Creek and the East Fork Eagle Creek itself, while five are on its tributaries. The highest falls on Eagle Creek is Twister Falls, which is a unique cascade of 140 feet (43 m). The highest tributary waterfall is Wauna Falls, which is 150 feet (46 m) high with a tallest drop of 50 feet (15 m). Lists are arranged with most downstream first and proceeding upstream along Eagle Creek. That’s destination where you don’t need any travel insurance or any kid of travel agency to book you this magnificent sightseer. Take first flight and explore this gorgeous nature all by yourself.

Punch Bowl Falls is a 33 feet (10 m) punchbowl, hence the name, just upstream of Lower Punch Bowl Falls, and is an incredibly popular subject of photography. The falls is formed as Eagle Creek is forced into a narrow channel, no more than 5 feet (1.5 m) wide, by sheer cliffs and shoots at high velocity into a natural amphitheater. This waterfall was responsible for the waterfall classification of “punchbowl”
