Distance: 3.6 miles roundtripElevation gain: 1,070 ftBeautiful trail through a nature preserveGreat views of the gorge the minute you leave the carWildflowers all aroundEpic views from the summitChallenging, 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.

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......Follow
