I have not hiked this trail yet, but it is very obvious that many AllTrails users are confusing this with the other Eagle Creek trail in the Columbia River Gorge just off of I-84 east. There are many reviews that need to be house cleaned/reviewed and moved to the correct trail or deleted. This type of misinformation could lead to someone having a very bad experience. Tighten it up people!

okay so alot of people are getting this hike confused with the eagle creek that is off of I 84 with all the waterfalls, these are two separate trails and should not be confused.

If you try to follow the trail as laid out here the first section of it will be a broken up road that is kind of technical to walk through if you want to make good time. I wasnt even sure if any trails were going to be there when i got towards the end. I spent several hours carefully picking my way through the tore up road looking for a trail and eventually you come to a section where the road was left paved. If you look directly to your left you will see a east bound trail marker for the douglas trail. If you keep walking the paved section of road to its end and there is a sign for the douglas trail to continue to eagle creek. According to this map eagle creek started further down the road and i wanted to see if it was there. the road was broken up again and i walked it another half mile or so and never found the start of the eagle creek. So i hopped back on the douglas trail that headed towards eagle creek and hoped to run into it then. Douglas trail is very overgrown in places and i never found where eagle creek hits it. So essentially you have broken up road and the small section where it is paved is douglas trail and i do believe if you take the west bound douglas trail it leads you down to eagle creek. But as far as eagle creek trail. I never saw it. I believe where douglas trail hits the switchbacks was combined with eagle creek trail because i did get that far on the douglas trail before turning back due to time.

Was still a fun and different hike. Hope this helps the next person.

This is not a trail, but an old road that was once paved and then demolished. The "trail" is literally the old demolished paved road, so you are walking on giant pavement chunks that are sticking out of the ground every which way.

Great trail! Would be a beautiful summer hike due to the shade presented by the gorgeous trees! It's not a steep trail, but you get some elevation. All forest trail above the creek.
