I'm planning a week full of camping and backpackign with my wife in Oregon.
Eagle Creek jumped out at me as one of the places to visit in the Columbia River Gorge area. I was thinking I'd want to hike all the way up to Tunnel Falls through verigo mile and possibly camp at Seven 1/2 camp.
so, Eagle Creek has a reputation of a great hike but crowded. Planning on hitting the trail on Monday or Tues morning in mid August. Will the crowds still be bad?...ie is it worth it?
Then, does it make sense to hike out the next day the same way we came? Would we do a loop. I saw Waltham lake, but it seemed to be multiple nights. Is there a 1 nighter loop? Can that Waltham Lake loop be done in 2 days/1 night.
Those are my questions. I plan to then jet further east in Oregon
