Hiking McCall Point

Oregon McCall Point Trail, Mosier, OR 97040, USA

Added by

Distance: 3.6 miles roundtrip. Elevation gain: 1,070 ft. Beautiful trail through a nature preserve. Great views of the gorge the minute you leave the car. Wildflowers all around. Epic views from the summit. Challenging, steep trail.

The trail begins at the Rowena Overlook on the Old Columbia River Highway between Hood River and the Dalles. Park at the Rowena Overlook, and you find the trail on the south side of the area. Follow the trail to the top of McCall Point. The trail is fairly level at first, but then climbs steeper and steeper as you work your way up Tom McCall Point.

You can hike this trail almost any day of the year, although that could be a challenge in winter – if it is wet outside, this trail can get really slippery! Especially from March through October, this hike provides you with a wonderful variety of landscapes to enjoy.

Perfect for view of wildflowers and new hikers

Took three of my friends on this hike last week (two who don't hike very often) and it was a great length and the perfect about of difficulty for new hikers! Didn't hurt that the views were incredibly rewarding and wildflowers we're everywhere. Such a rare view where you can see Mount Adams and Mount Hood at the same time! Recommend for families and people who are just getting into hiking-- it's hard but totally doable

Wildflowers & Rowena Crest

The cool thing is that this adventure starts at Rowena Crest, one of the most photographed places in Oregon. This is one of my favorite places to visit during spring when flowers are blooming from May to June.

Stunning Views!

This is a lovely hike and I highly recommend it! The description is accurate, the climb is a bit intense at a few points, but would rate it more moderate overall. The views are exceptional - you can see the entire Gorge, Mt Adams and Mt Hood, and so many beautiful landscapes. Lots of natural vegetation. In the early spring, tons of wildflowers abound. Even in late May, many wildflowers everywhere, creating lovely photo ops. Bring water and your camera!

Hi Everyone Im a commercial photographer based in Portland Oregon, but work on location all around the country. While most all of my advertising work is for motor sports clients (Yamaha, Honda, Ford) I like to spend my free time out exploring the NW's hiking and mt bike trails. Rain or shine, day or night, you can usually find me outside......

Explore the Portland Japanese Garden

Oregon / Portland Japanese Garden

While the Portland Japanese Garden is a popular place for tourists, it's also a favorite for Portland residents as it's located right in Washington Park close to trails and across from the Rose Garde.
