Catherine Creek is a 2 mile loop trail located near Lyle, Washington that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for birding & hiking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
The hike takes you past a waterfall, up through rocks and oaks to another waterfall to get to some beautiful views. There is a lot of poison oak, so leave your pant legs on and don't let your hands dangle aimlessly into tall vegetation along the trail. There is an rock arch that seems out of place in the environment, don't plan on getting too close it is clearly marked off.
Starting at White Salmon, WA head east on SR 14 to Rowland Lake past marker 70. Turn onto old highway #8 at Rowland Lake. Park just off 14 in the area provided. The trail starts east on the old highway that is closed to traffic. We used Ramano's Columbia River Gorge book for the unmarked trail
Lots of parking space at the trailhead. No other facilities. There is however a portajohn across the street at Catherine Creek Walk.
