I took my 2 and 4 year old from the top by Astoria column to the tree and back up they loved it!! Would definitely recommend this to people with small kids.

The Gnat Creek Trail is the greatest resource for trail running on Highway 30, and perhaps in all of northwest Oregon! Awesome curves, hills, and forest; runnable year-round; solitude and inspiration await you! Try it, you'll love it! I do!!!

It is an OK trail. Great for a quick run. It isn't too isolating; you can hear cars on roads. The column is beautiful and maintained very well. Worth going if you are familiar with history.

Awesome hike and beautiful!

If you are an avid hiker or backpacker, skip this one. At about a mile each way, it's a boring trail to an uninteresting tree as you've probably seen thousands of others that elicited more oohs and ahhs than this one.

Great! Enjoyed the old trees.

Great for a little hike.

The map is kind of confusing but a nice little hike

Alright hike. Took out seven year old. Little more than 2.5 miles if you do the upper and lower together.

great work out. super muddy but other then that great hike

Fairly easy trail. November 7 2015. Raining hard. Very foggy was so beautiful.

Very nice! Just right to let the terriers burn off some energy before walking around downtown Astoria. It took about 1.75 hours and there was enough incline to make my heart sit up and pay attention. No gnats! And s pretty spot by the creek near the end.

Beautiful hike coupled with the Astoria Column...what's NOT to like? All of my guests thoroughly enjoy it.

This is an absolutely awesome trip through the woods! 100% runnable, a bit of mud in the winter, but usable year-round. I have run it dozens of times and rarely see another user. Highly recommend!

Great mild challenge for the family. My youngest is 5 and she did well. Will do it again for sure!

Fun trail. The Column is one of my favorite places in Astoria. A spiral staircase leads to an observation deck at the top with beautiful views of Astoria.
