Sevenmile Falls is (presumably) the uppermost of the seven major waterfalls along Oregon's tumultuous Eagle Creek. Coincidentally it happens to occur near the seven mile mark of the Eagle Creek trail as well as being the seventh waterfall along Eagle Creek. The falls plunge about 40 feet over the standard basalt seen everywhere in the Columbia Gorge, ending in a pool as the trail traverses a precarious ledge adjacent to the bowl it occupies. Unfortunately because most people turn around at either Tunnel or Twister Falls, this waterfall is often neglected, but I would definitely suggest continuing to this point before turning around.
- Sevenmile Falls is the Proposed name of this waterfall.
- Known Alternate Names: Upper Eagle Creek Falls
Despite being plainly visible from the Eagle Creek Trail this waterfall doesn't appear to have ever been given a name, so I've proposed it be named for its geologic position along the creek (and because "Eagle Creek Falls" is boring).
Sevenmile Falls is accessed from the Eagle Creek Trail near the Bonneville Dam in the Columbia River Gorge. Depart Interstate 84 at Eagle Creek (signed, but only accessible to eastbound traffic 0 westbounders need to turn around at the Bonneville Dam exit), turn left and proceed to the trailhead. Sevenmile Falls is passed just over 6 1/2 miles from the trailhead, less than 1/4 mile past the top of Twister Falls.
