“This gem of an old-growth trail parallels the "other" Eagle Creek - the one without all the crowds!”— Kathleen Walker
Family Friendly This trail has a gentle grade with old growth trees that are impressive. The side creek crossings are best done in summer. The Eagle Creek ford at the end of the trail is a good turnaround point.
This Eagle Creek Trail #501 follows alongside Eagle Creek passing through old-growth Douglas fir, western hemlock and western red cedar forest. The first few miles skirt the creek higher on the hill but the creek can always be heard. There are several creek crossings along the trail that can be more challenging in winter and spring. There are also several campsites. The latter part of the trail on the east end is along Eagle Creek. The trail ends at a ford of Eagle Creek. Across the ford is the Eagle Creek Cutoff Trail #504.
