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.

Awesome hike, pretty easy. I usually do this at least once a month. The view and the pictures you can take up there make this REALLY worth the walk, especially sunrise/sunset.

I enjoyed this hike. Less crowded than the lower falls hikes in the area. Great view of the gorge and river from Angel's rest.

Love this hike! Great work out and very rewarding. During warm summer days, it can be very warm on the top. My dog had issues finding shade. Bring lots of water. Take your time to explore the summit. There are multiple awesome spots.

great trail. Good work out climbing uphill. Beautiful views at top. Lots of dogs for my dog to visit with. Hunter gets hot and thirsty at top, so carry at least 1-2 liters water for you and dog. Fun hike to do at night, when moon is full or close. You can do the round trip in 2 hours if you move fast, don't linger too long at top or easily in 3 hours and enjoy views. Parking is a challenge on weekends.

Amazing views and rocks to perch on. Only downside was the number of people! Even parking was a challenge. But it's a great hike so it's easy to see why it's so popular.

Definitely a great view at the top and not that difficult a climb if u are in shapd. Heavy traffic on trail so start early in morning if don't want the traffic on the trail. Also came across 5 snakes on trail, all in the upper elevation on the ridge, some small and some fair size so be aware.

This is a moderate, beautiful and well maintained trail for any type of hiker. The views along the way are nice, but once you get up to final part of Angels Rest, the views of the Columbia River Gorge are out of this world. It's definitely a stunning panoramic view of the river with the mountain ranges in the background. I would recommend this hike for a couple, a group of friends or even yourself. It's safe, fun and a nice workout during anytime of the day!

Went on a random weekday and it was a gorgeous day. I love more challenging trails, and was glad that this trail is not too easy, which truly makes it feel more like an adventure, and the breathtaking view at the end is more than rewarding. This trail definitely represents the beautiful Oregon cascades.
