Climb to the top of a large, freestanding monolith by the Columbia River with spectacular views of the gorge from the top. The trail is a combination of pavement, boardwalk, and rock with some forest. “This trail proves that engineers can build a trail anywhere they want to.” (from Hiking the Columbia River Gorge) Contact leader, Darlene Dickinson, at (preferably) DarleneDickinson@hotmail.com or 360-357-3527.
