Signs say trail to Elowah is closed but it is not. They have cut a new trail around the wash out. Nobody was paying attention to the signs. Lots of people out today. Some of the pipes that form a fence at the trail with the shear drop off have corroded and fallen off. I would not put any pressure on them! Great hike - Elowah and McCord.

The Elowah trail was closed due to parts of the trail being washed out, but the McCord trail was open. Once you get to the top, the views of the gorge are spectacular and a beautiful waterfall awaits!

FYI ACCORDING TO THE STATE PARKS SERVICE THE TRAIL TO ELOWAH FALLS IS CLOSED!!!
Plenty of people rebelled and went anyway... They all made it down and out just fine. One might say that it was worth it.

Beautiful view of the Columbia River at the top. The falls were equally as beautiful.

Didn't do it - but wanted to let people know the elowah falls trail is closed today! The other trail is still open.

The hike was great except that Elowah was closed due to the trail being washed out. McCord was awesome though! A nice little hike up
