Front-Flipping into Eagle Creek on a 96 Degree Day
On a scorching hot 96 day in Oregon, there is nothing better than playing outside in nature - specifically the ice-cold ponds and creeks. Eagle Creek has many good swimming and jumping spots where you can front flip or just take a dip in the water to cool off!
Riding the 35-ft Punchbowl Falls Like a Slide
If you climb down to the top of Punchbowl Falls, the rocks leading to the waterfall are surprisingly smooth and straight - this makes it possible to sit down, and let the waterfall carry you off the edge like a 35-ft slide made out of nature!

Dangerous Hike Along the Edge of A Mountain in the Columbia River Gorge

1 Mile Into the Eagle Creek Trail to Punchbowl Falls
