Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Trail Updates
Some trails between Multnomah Falls and Cascade Locks are still closed due to hazard trees and rockslides caused by the 2017 Eagle Creek Fire. If you have not already done so, check our closure map to see if your destination is affected and feel free to browse for alternative options by visiting our Recreation Page. Also check weather and road conditions before heading out. We highly recommend avoiding recently burned areas during high wind and rain events for your safey, as weather can trigger landslides and flash floods. Respect signs that mark closures, as we are still actively citing people that violate the closures.

About Our Trail Maintenance
Reports are updated based on the latest staff and visitor observations. Yet, wilderness is wild and conditions can change very quickly in the forest! Please be prepared to encounter unexpected obstacles (logs, trail washouts, overgrown sections) on your hike.
To report downed trees on the trail, call (541) 308-1700 with the trail name, approximate location on the trail, and if possible the number of trees and approximate tree diameter. (Tip: can you wrap your arms around it or is it bigger?)
