Eagle Creek is a tributary of the Columbia River in Multnomah and Hood River counties in the U.S. state of Oregon. It cuts through a narrow canyon in its 3,200 feet  descent to the Columbia River Gorge and is known for its concentration of waterfalls. This is a description of all 13 falls. Eight major falls are on Eagle Creek and the East Fork Eagle Creek itself, while five are on its tributaries. The highest falls on Eagle Creek is Twister Falls, which is a unique cascade of 140 feet. The highest tributary waterfall is Wauna Falls, which is 150 feet  high with a tallest drop of 50 feet. Lists are arranged with most downstream first and proceeding upstream along Eagle Creek. Tunnel Falls is the only known waterfall on the East Fork Eagle Creek, with a sheer plunge of 130 feet  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  above the streambed.  Source
