Leader-team Patty Mizutani (board member), Richard Rosenhaft, and Linda Hughes will be our guides on a geological history outing at Beacon Rock State Park to view how the ice age floods carved the Gorge's landscape. We’ll start first down by the Beacon Rock boat launch area just west of the rock to hike the River to Rock Trail, leading us to the main Beacon Rock trail. We’ll ascend the rock’s 54 switchbacks to a beautiful view at the top before descending back to our starting point, learning the history and geology of this Gorge geologic icon along the way.
