The Tunnel Behind Tunnels Falls
Photograph - Photograph
Tunnel Falls is the only known waterfall on the East Fork Eagle Creek, with a sheer plunge of 130 feet (40 m) into a narrow bowl. Its most famous feature is the way the Eagle Creek Trail passes behind it, through a narrow tunnel blasted in the cliff face, 60 feet (18 m) above the streambed. The falls takes its name from this tunnel. The waterfall is actually on the East Fork Eagle Creek, not on Eagle Creek itself, but the East Fork is a substantial stream and Tunnel Falls is often associated with Eagle Creek anyway.
Tunnel Falls is at coordinates 45.5850�N 121.8522�W.
