PCT South from Cascade Locks

Right off Interstate 84 in Cascade Locks where the Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Bridge of the Gods north into Washington is an easily accessible (and thus popular) section of the PCT. The trail stretches through forest and scree field for about 4 miles to a junction with the Herman Creek Trail, an introduction (or farewell) to Oregon for PCT hikers. Along the way is a diversion up the creek to where Dry Creek falls spills down, punching through the layer of lava flow.
