Loowit Falls (Eagle Creek)

From Portland Hikers Field Guide

Loowit Falls on Eagle Creek (Steve Hart)

Description

This pretty waterfall is located about 3 miles from the trailhead on the Eagle Creek Trail. This part of the trail is blasted out of the rock and the open area provides a wonderful view across the canyon. Loowit Creek cascades about 90 feet into a small pool, then slides over the rock a few more feet into Eagle Creek.

Near the base of Loowit Falls, 15 foot High Bridge Falls is visible on Eagle Creek itself. The short, blocky somewhat violent High Bridge Falls makes a nice contrast to lacy Loowit Falls. There's a viewpoint a bit farther on the trail looking over High Bridge Falls with Loowit Falls in the background.
