Tanner Creek to Eagle Creek
"Toothrock Trail"

Roadbed: Paved asphalt
Distance: Approximately 1.5 miles
Grade: Flat to Mild (5% maximum)
Hike/Bike: A perfect hike or biking trail. Easy path and minimum altitude changes.

The entire restored highway portion extends from the Moffett Creek Bridge to Cascade Locks. This segment links Tanner Creek to Eagle Creek.

Take the Bonneville exit 40, (eastbound or westbound) turn south at the stop sign and proceed to the road on the left that takes you to the parking area. From there you can either go back to Tanner Creek along the bike trail or proceed west to Toothrock where you can get a magnificent view of Bonneville Dam and the gorge. About ¼ mile west of this point you will come to a special bike stairway that will take you to the road to the famous Eagle Creek Bridge and the fish hatchery.

For those who want to continue on towards Cascade Locks (2.5 miles more), pick up the paved path just north of the hatchery paralleling the freeway. This will take you uphill on a 3-5% grade about ½ mile to Ruckel Creek, then downhill under the freeway through a special tunnel and on to Cascade Locks. Barriers along the way (except at the Eagle Creek exit) will keep you separated from auto traffic.
