Hike from Eagle Creek Trail to Punch Bowl Falls.

Hike from Eagle Creek trail to Punchbowl Falls. There are a ton of other hikes surrounding this area so if you are here for a few days I would suggest check other ones out as well. It's a fairly easy hike but it gets a little steep at points so if you're afraid of hikes this might not be for you. Other than that, there's gorgeous views throughout and it's fun for the whole family.
