Directions: Take I-84 East to exit 41. Go right and past the hatchery. There are a number of parking areas.
This hike is a continuation of the Eagle Creek Trail. The first two miles of this hike are described in our Punchbowl Falls post, here.
From Punchbowl Falls the trail continues on high above the creek but with an even grade. In about a quarter mile you’ll come to a view of Punchbowl Fall from above. Continue on the trail for about another mile and you will come to Loowit Falls. It’s across the creek but easily visible.
From here a short time later you will come to another cable area in the trail. It’s shorter than the first two back before Punchbowl Falls. You will start to see High Bridge as you make you’re way along the cliff side. Once at High Bridge there are a few places to stop and eat lunch. This is an out and back hike.
**Update: We went even farther on the Eagle Creek trail. Check out our post on Tunnel Falls.
