Cape Horn Vista

Cape Horn Vista
This beautiful, 47-acre property near the popular Cape Horn Trail blankets the side of a bluff and offers a magnificent view of the Gorge. The land is currently fenced off from hikers, routing them away from the expansive scenery of the Columbia River. The parcel abuts a property on which Friends holds a life estate contract: at the owner’s death, Friends will purchase the land with secured funds. These two properties total more than 90 acres. Acquiring them will complete our founder, Nancy Russell’s, legacy of a park that everyone can enjoy.
