We took the Hazel Avenue entrance to this trail which has many segments and ways to access it. This took us from where the creek empties into Hood River upriver towards Dutch Bros. There were beautiful wildflowers and views. Before reaching Dutch Bros we took a left over a small trail bridge to access the trail on the other side of Indian Creek. Another pretty stretch. Overall we walked ~2 miles each way.
The trail occasionally runs close to private properties but for being so close to town it still has a nice woodsy feel.

While scouring the map for hiking trails near downtown Hood River, I found Indian Creek Trail. It appeared to be two miles out from our hotel, then two miles back -- perfect for our usual post-breakfast walk while traveling.

After climbing (and climbing, and climbing) the Second Stairs, it was a short amble along quiet city streets to the trailhead.

This rolling trail highlights beautiful canyon views far above Indian Creek, progressing to a wetland 1.5 miles up the trail. Vistas include orchards, which were just starting to bloom on our visit. A few relatively new trail signs highlight watershed restoration that has been done. An old wooden pipeline is nicely preserved along the top end of the first section of trail.

Footing is excellent, and the trail seems very well-drained. I wouldn't expect much mud.

In more than an hour of hiking, we saw only a couple of people on the trail itself. Between sections of trail, there is a street crossing at a signaled intersection. The top end of the main trail section finishes near a college branch campus and some riparian areas where restoration is being done.

It's beautiful walking, breathtakingly quiet, and something for Hood River to be proud of. This isn't wilderness, but a fine example of how humans and nature can coexist. This may not make the travel brochures, but it is worth taking the time to seek out.

This is an enjoyable easy hike right in the middle of the town. There are no sleep inclines (other than the long and steep flights of steps at the downtown entrance/exit) We began our hike at the trailhead near Dutch Bros, hiked to the downtown for lunch and then hiked back, great opportunity for exercise. There are places for refreshments at both ends! Much of the trail follows an abandoned wooden water tunnel which is interesting.

The trail is short. It doesn't really go anywhere exciting. A little bit around the community college, then out to the bluff. Maybe 2-3 miles total of trail. If they expand it south somehow, maybe that would make it more worthwhile...

Almost three miles of trail along Indian creek is a perfect venue for a little exercise and a wonderful dog walk. On a hot day barclay takes a couple of dips in the creek

Accessing the trailhead from downtown is fairly easy...just go up a very long flight of stairs and follow the signs. This trail gives a nice view of Eagle Creek and Hood River (the river), as well as glimpses of highway 35. Of interest is the old abandoned wooden water pipe which parallels the trail and the history behind it as given by a special sign at the top end of the trail. The trail can be accessed from the highlands part of Hood River or from downtown.

The trail is well groomed, has new bridges, rails and signs. It was a gravel based path so wear running shoes. It is about 1.3 miles round trip and a great little hike that takes you up to the top of the hill through the neighborhood. Saw evidence of possible camps just so you know.

This path goes between the neighbors of Hood River. It is a delightful place to take a walk or run. Walking your dog here is pleasant. In the late summer you will find wild berries to pick along the way.

We enjoyed the long and steep stairs to downtown Hood River. They are interesting and historical as they’ve been there since 50 years ago when my mom lived here. She enjoyed taking the stairs again after all these years!
