A 160-foot waterfall that flows from high cliffs onto the water beds below. Stunning views and majestic tunnels behind the falls along with connective hiking trails make this a popular destination.

Tunnel Falls is located in Cascade Locks, Oregon. Many hikes lead to lead to Tunnel Falls. Hiking the Eagle Creek Trail and Wahtum Lake hike will lead you to Tunnel Falls. Tunnel Falls have carved the basin over a timespan of thousands of years due to natural erosion from the East Eagle Fork Stream. It has a stunning, impressive flow down to the water beds below. The waterfall measures at a height of 160 feet with an elevation of 1200 feet. The most impressive view, however, is the tunnels that were man-made behind the river. The tunnels were made to create walking trails through the area back in the early 1900s. The tunnel is very slick, and hikers are advised to use all precautions when on the hiking trails. Avoidance of freezing temperatures is highly encouraged, as well. The naturally eroding landscape also creates an additional level of difficulty and danger. This section is considered to be the slickest along the Columbia River Gorge. The waterfalls have impressive views, and looking downward hikers are able to see the fork in the river that merges the east fork of Eagle Creek with the Grand Union Falls. Many hikers choose to continue the hike onto Twister Falls. Twister Falls is two-tiered and is 200-feet high. It is also known as Eagle Creek Falls. Many visitors and locals encourage the additional effort to experience the impressive views of the trails.
