Cape Horn

A moderate hike of 7 miles round trip and 1,350 feet of elevation gain. This rolling loop hike offers stunning views of the Columbia River. Hiking through forest with occasional views of the river makes this a cool hike during the summer months and a sheltered hike in the winter.


  • The lower section of the loop is closed February 1 - July 15 for the nesting peregrine falcons. But a lovely hike can be made by an out and back of the upper section of trail.
