John B. Yeon State Scenic Corridor is a state park at the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge. The park is named for John B. Yeon, who acted as roadmaster in the construction of the Historic Columbia River Highway. The highlight of the park is Elowah Falls, a 200-foot waterfall on McCord Creek. From the parking area, follow the trail to a split and go left onto Gorge Trail. This trail runs for a long distance through the gorge and can be used to connect to other waterfalls further west in the gorge. In under a mile, you will reach the beautiful waterfall. The cliffs surrounding the waterfall are covered in bright yellow-green lichen that makes the seen that much more beautiful. And, unlike many waterfalls in the gorge, you are likely to have this hidden gem to yourself.
