Council Bluff Trail is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Stevenson, Washington that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
Council Lake is a great place to camp if you're looking for something a little more primitive and less crowded. The hike up to the bluff is all uphill but not too long, and SO worth it! In fact, it's one of my favorite spots in the entire Northwest. You have an in-your-face view of Mt Adams with the lake in the foreground and a distant view of all the other NW volcanos. Not to be missed!
