Description

Added by Kristina Kifyak

Hike to the top to see a gorgeous view of the Columbia Gorge.

When I went here it was a little difficult to find as there is no sign that says where the trail begins. Once you find a parking spot (anywhere on the side of the road), start going up until to the right you will see a white sign that says something about seeds. There is a trail, begin going up. 

It starts out alright, not too steep and then as you keep hiking, it gets steeper. Some areas are pretty narrow but safe. There are areas where you will be hiking through rocks. The views are pretty amazing. The hike up is basically through a forest and you can see nearby mountains at some points. As you gain elevation, the wind might pick up a little. The trail is pretty windy and steep so bringing kids isn't a good idea unless they're fit! Also, bringing dogs would be a little hard. 

As soon as you get to the top there will be lots of trees, keep right and it will lead you to the west view of the Columbia. As you keep going, it will open up and you will be able to see the river and neighboring mountains. There are more rocks that you would have to hike through to get to the viewpoints. After the West view you can keep heading forward to get a view of the south. You will be on the Washington side looking out to Oregon in front. Beautiful views!
