John B. Yeon State
B. Yeon Scenic Corridor honors a man who gave generously of
his time and professional skills. He was one of the principal
architects of the Historic Columbia River Highway (US 30); a
major portion of the scenic highway joins I-84 westbound at
Yeon State Park.
Here is a hiker's paradise with a gentle rising trail that
permits access to two of the most beautiful and secluded
waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge: (lower) Elowah Falls
and (upper) McCord Creek falls. Elowah Falls is a 289 foot
drop over basalt that must be seen to appreciate. The view of
the falls and way the tall cliffs jut out at odd angles is
nearly disorienting at the bottom of the trail. Most days, the
trails are never crowded. The crisp air, easy access and
accompanying scenery of this area offer some of the best
hiking and viewing opportunities available in the Gorge.
