Beacon Rock State Park is a 5,100-acre year-round camping park with historic significance dating back hundreds of years. The park includes 9,500 feet of freshwater shoreline on the Columbia River.

its a good quick hike, with an awesome view at the top. kinda wish the old look out was still there

It was a rainy/foggy day and the falls were roaring. Didn't have time to hike the full trail, but made it to Pool of the Winds. Very nice.

Great year round trail! A little muddy in parts. Next time hopefully I remember my hiking poles.

Great views, slippery short, crowded. Must do it once!

Went on a cool, breezy Sunday morning so the traffic was light. Very beautiful views at several spots on the way up. The trail and rails are were in pretty good shape.

Pool of Winds - incredible. View from the top worth the vert.

Loved it! Hard end of moderate.

Better than dog. Even with the rain, a great hike but views can be sketchy with cloud coverage. Nice to complete the hike with a climb of Beacon.

Moderate trail with lots of vertical switches covering gravel, wooden walkways and dirt. Lots of kids and groups. The top gets crowded easily and does not offer a panoramic view but there are some great ones of the Colombia River on the way up. $10 to park. The climbing trails were all closed but I'm not a climber. Must do!

the trail is harder than I thought and it is very tiring

great views on a short hike..well worth it

Amazing views! Easy hike. No bathrooms.

If you have some free time and don't mind spending about two to four hours hiking to beautiful lookout points of the Columbia Gorge; I would have to recommend this hike! The trail is moderate to a novice hiker like myself, there is some steep parts to the trail, but nothing too challenging. The Pool of the Winds was pretty amazing and fun spot to cool off before you trek up the mountain to more look out points. I decided to hike the whole loop on a weekday and there wasn't any foot traffic. The views are totally worth the 6.9 miles, trust me!

Hiked this after hiking the Hamilton Mountain Loop trail- made paying $10 to park worth it!

Fun hike- combined it with hiking Beacon Rock trail for a fun morning. I went early and was alone on the trail for most of my hike!

This was a great trail with tons of scenic vistas. I highly recommend. The views of the gorge were phenomenal. It was very clear and I could see so many snow capped mountains. Just make sure to have a discovery pass or 10 dollars.

Great hike for beginners, easy very well maintained trail and beautiful scenery, makes this hike a must if you are looking for a short hike while in the area. After the hike you can soak in the mineral waters of Bonneville Spa just a few miles away.

Great hike, steep in places. But Pool Of The Winds .... Magnificent! Want to do it again.
