Trail Description Driving Directions
Trail Alert, May 11, 2017: This is not a dog-friendly trail because of steep cliffs. Two dogs have died here recently so please keep your dog at home.
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.
