A moderate-rated hike off highway 30 that leads to awesome views of the Columbia River & Gorge. Starting in a fern-filled forest, the trail climbs uphill for 0.6 mile before reaching the top of Coopey Falls, a 150 to 175 foot horsetail waterfall, and the footbridge crossing the creek. Continuing on, the trail begins to switchback uphill for 1.6 miles before reaching the ridge crest. Turn left at a junction to a spectacular gorge viewpoint. Use extreme caution at the steep cliff edge. Some nice flower features of this hike are the wildflower displays (which peaks in May) of blue-eyed grass, star-flowered Smiliacina, and trillium at lower levels. Also you get a grand view of the Gorge once you reach the top. There is even a bench to rest yourself on that overlooks the entire area.

Going on a 100 degree day probably wasn't the greatest idea but the view and the breeze at the top was well worth it!

Breath-taking views of the Columbia River Gorge with a serious work out.

Beautiful walk through the woods, over giant slates of rock, and to a view overlooking the gorge. If you follow the trail to the right, it leads to the less traveled wahkeena falls trail. Dog friendly.

I was looking for a fun yet strenuous sprint hike and this fit the bill. 75 and overcast, I didn't bring any water and was up and down in 2 hrs. Great short adventure from Portland!

Loved it. I went on a hike with my dogs. They did fine. Couple spots were super rocky and I had to carry them. Otherwise super family and dogs friendly hike

Did this trail yesterday evening. It was a weekday and we hit the trail at about six. It was perfect, as it was not too crowded. It's a great workout, straight up! My dog did great and the views were amazing! Plan for about an hour up if you are in moderately good shape. Took us about 50min up, with two short breaks. I heard someone made it up in 30min but I'm doubtful. It's steep.

great hike, although it was extremely busy. The day was hot, but the views could not be beat. The hike was pretty strenuous and was all up hill.

a bit busy...but not too bad and everyone was super friendly. Awesome views at the top. It keeps going to the right, but I did not find out where it goes. Maybe next time, and there will be a next time because I really enjoyed this hike. ♡
