Aldrich Butte Trail is a 3.6 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Stevenson, WA that features a waterfall and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
Great hike really makes you work for it at the end but the view from the top is so worth it. I passed two people on my way up and 2 couples on the way down. Will do again! Parking for the trail is at the warm springs resort you pay at the front desk and then drive over to the day use area and the trail is pretty easy to find. There is a split at about a mile in keep right and you will find signs for Aldrich butte to follow.
Awesome trail! Didn't see or pass anyone else on the way up or down.
Starts with a pretty good incline then levels off for a little bit before going really steep for the last 1/3 mile or so. The views from the top were incredible as most in the Columbia River Gorge are.
Parking is $5.00 paid at the guest check-in counter for the Bonneville Hot Springs Resort.
Really great hike! I love that there is rarely anyone else on this trail. One of my favorite short hikes for sure. It can be done really quick and it's such an incredible view for the amount of effort.
