Eagle Creek is a creek in Hood River County, Oregon, United States. The creek drains into the Columbia River in Multnomah County, with its outlet on the Columbia River Gorge. It is in the Mount Hood National Forest. The Eagle Creek Trail – the most popular trail in the Gorge – follows the creek.Tunnel Falls and Punch Bowl Falls, located on Eagle Creek, are remote and scenic waterfalls along the creek. The Historic Columbia River Highway crosses the creek's outlet to the Columbia River. A substantial hike through some occasionally rough terrain is required to get to the creek's namesake waterfall.Eagle Creek Trail was built by the CCC and WPA in the 1930s for the Pacific Crest Trail, probably to cross the Columbia River at Bonneville Dam. The PCT was rerouted to its current route some 1.5mi further east sometime by the early 1970s to connect with the Bridge of the Gods across the Columbia River.
