Trail Description Driving Directions
Trail Alert, Jul 12, 2018: Trail closed due to 2017 Eagle Creek fire, however, it is expected to open by the end of 2018.
This hike is a winding trail (#415) on the western end of the Columbia River Gorge that takes you up to great views. It starts at about river level and quickly climbs up through trees and then over boulders before rising to a bluff above the river. From the top, you'll get a spectacular 270 degree view of the Gorge, including many landmarks like Beacon Rock and Silver Star Mountain.
Note: Dogs must be on-leash since this is a heavy use area.
