Meet at the Coyote Wall Trailhead at 8:45 a.m.  so you are ready to hike at 9:00 a.m.   The trailhead is east of Bingen, WA and between mileposts 69 & 70 on Highway 14.

We will do the Coyote Wall - Labyrinth Loop route, with views, waterfalls, and wildflowers.

I have a group campsite reserved at the Wyeth Campground for Friday and Saturday nights, for those able to make these hikes more than a day trip.   The campground  is off of Interstate 8 at Exit 51 in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area.   The cost of the campsite (per night: $34 plus $5 per vehicle)will be shared by those who choose to camp there for either one or two nights.  All campgrounds in this area have some highway and train noise, so bring your earplugs for sleeping!
