This hike begins at the Herman Creek trailhead, just east of Cascade Locks. The trail goes through a forested area burned by the 2017 Eagle Creek fire. However, the understory that was burned is now recovering, and the canopy cover was mostly spared. The trail has switchbacks for the first mile to a ridge above Herman Creek. Nick Eaton Falls is the destination at 2.2 miles. Part of the trail is in the Mark O. Hatfield wilderness area. We should find early wild flowers along the trail. We will return the same route after a break at the falls. We will have lunch in Cascade Locks.

Bring water and snacks for the trail. Hiking boots or shoes are recommended, and poles, if desired.

The historic Zimmerman House was built in 1874 and was home to three generations of the Zimmerman family. Their furnishings and personal articles remain in this two-story Victorian home, with nine rooms open to the public.

Our “Vases and Valentines” exhibit is now open. We are pairing the valentines with vases, and these vary from Depression Glass to Carnivale Glass to pottery from Roseville, Hull and van Briggle. This is the first time we’ve pulled the vases in the collection into an exhibit and many of these have rarely been out of storage.

We’ll have the contents of a traveling trunk found in the house, which belonged to Isobel’s uncle, Andrew McCall, on exhibit for just a few more months.

We are open the third Saturday of every month from noon - 4:00 pm. Admission is free, with donations welcome and appreciated.
