Mitchell Point Trail is a 1.9 mile out and back trail located near Hood River, OR that features a river and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from March until April.
Steep, rocky and by times slippery, but oh so worth it! Be prepared for 1300f elevation in only 1.3m. The summit has an awesome 360 degrees view and especially a gorgeous view on the Columbia River Gorge. My dog and I really enjoyed this hike!
Worth it. Very steep and rocky. The history of the place is unsettling. A beautiful hand dug tunnel blasted in the 60s for the name of progress. Typical of the generation. What a wasted era.
Short and steep with some great views at the top. Lots of poison oak alongside the trails, but we didn't see another person on the trail the whole time (relatively early on a Monday morning in August). Several steep spots through loose rocks that makes for tough footing.
Just finished hiking this trail. Great short trail with a few parts that require some good hiking shoes to maintain grip. However the view from the top is breathtaking and worth every bit of the trail.
it's a real quick hike takes me about 20 minutes to get to the top pretty steep but the view at the point is amazing
Worth the great views!
overall good experience for a part-time (vacation only) hiker like myself. i was the only one on trail maybe due to overcast weather. hiking poles would help if i had planned. parts of the steep trail are tricky with loose gravel, but i never slipped because i had good hiking boots and took my time to make sure steps were secure while taking plenty of photos. short section with loose rocks also tricky but can be navigated if you can see which trail to take,
the view was fantastic; and just a few others were on the trail. hiking through the rock patch that others have mentioned is difficult - but it's worth it.
This was a great hike! The pay off for the intense incline is well worth it. Took us 1:20 to make it to the top and back with 10mins. to take in the view from the top. It's spectacular!
Great payoff, but difficult trail--lots of loose shale and some very dangerous precipices.
Amazing hike. Beautiful views. Pretty tough
I did this hike Yesterday February 1st, 2015. The trail was very well-maintained. I did this alone and realized I need to work on cardio a little more. It's a short hike well worth the view. It gets a little steep at one point and there is a short hillside covered in loose rocks that you need to get up. It's only about 15-20ft but prepare to get a little dirty. The overall view is stunning. My trip had plenty of fog but on a dry day. Nobody else on the trail. Don't take too many people to the summit. 3 people MAXIMUM. It's quite narrow at the top but a beautiful view
It's a fun trail that has a decent climb for the beginners. Great view at the top, very fun but be careful!
Great views of the gorge atop a great slab of rock. A bit scary at the top with steep cliffs on each side but well worth it for the view. The trail itself follows telephone poles nearly the whole way.
