(Complete details on these area markets below)

You'll find plenty of root vegetables, braising greens and lettuces, and of course plant starts for your own vegetable garden.

Bring your reusable shopping bags and plenty of small bills, though some of the markets will trade you a credit/debit card for wooden tokens that all vendors accept, which can be easier to handle than cash. We've indicated those markets that accept EBT or other food assistant coupons.

  • Distance: About 4.5 miles
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Elevation gain: 970 feet
  • Trail conditions: Forest trail, switchbacks, rocks, small creek crossings
  • Round-trip travel: 68 miles
  • Suggested donation per rider: $8

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.
