Join Friends Executive Director Kevin Gorman and Trailhead Ambassador Cindy Luxhoj on one of the most iconic challenges in the Columbia Gorge. We’ll start right away with a steep ascent up Starvation Ridge through lush forest up to Warren Lake. We’ll catch our breath before continuing up to the summit of Mount Defiance, the highest peak in the Scenic Area, before the descent. We’ll hike at a moderate pace and on the way learn about Gorge ecology and history.

This is an expert-level, full-day hike on very steep terrain.
