Hall Point

Hall Point is a moderate to strenuous hike with between 1,300 and 2,000 feet of elevation gain based on whether you access the trail from the Lower Twin Falls trailhead or from the Deception Crags climbing area. The route follows Change Creek with great views of Mount Teneriffe and Green Mountain to the west, Mailbox Peak to the north and Snoqualmie Pass to the east.

on the trail

From the Lower Twin Falls trailhead

Hike past the falls and up to the John Wayne Pioneer Trail. Travel east on the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail (formerly John Wayne Trail) to the start of the Change Creek Trail. The Change Creek Trail goes up the ridge between Change and Hall Creeks. The trail is fairly steep and can be quite rugged in places, but is well-maintained and even signed. The adventurous can take a short side-trip to Ollalie Point and and another short side trip to Hall Point for exceptional views. From Hall Point, retrace the route back to the trailhead.

This trail is an alternative approach to Mount Washington up the Change Creek Valley, that offers excellent views and minimizes the time spent hiking on logging roads compared to the Mount Washington Trail.

From Deception Crags Climbing Area off Exit 38

The rough trail begins between the trestle bridges that span Change Creek and Hall Creek. It is pretty hidden so start looking for it as soon as you cross the bridge. A few feet up the trail a sign reading “Change Creek Trail” will confirm you’re on the right trail. 


  • There can be some tricky snowfields to cross depending on the season.
