Eagle Creek Fire

On the afternoon of Sept. 2, 2017, a wildfire erupted along the very popular Eagle Creek trail near Cascade Locks, Oregon in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. While the fire caused significant damage to many trails, the Columbia River Gorge is a resilient place and the communities will restore, rebuild and rejuvenate the Columbia River Gorge. Due to hazards from the Eagle Creek fire of 2017, many areas remain closed. For more information on closures see travel alerts.
