hiking

This is a great, easy set of trails. Truly beautiful. I took my Yorkie there. As someone else mentioned, it is definitely not for strollers, at least not the trail I took. Actually, I don't know which trail I took. The only issue I have with this area is that, while it's great to have signs showing the different trails, I had no idea where on the map I was. I pulled out my phone and figured it out from my AllTrails app, but I still wasn't sure which direction to go in, and I shouldn't have to rely on my phone. A "you are here" dot would go a long way. Luckily, it's a pretty straightforward hike, and eventually you'll end up back on campus. Overall a nice hike on a hot day.

Did this hike a few years ago. To see my pictures and review please visit The Washington Trails Association website (WTA.org). Loved the Silver Star Mountain view, and so will you!! Silver Star is the highest point in Skamania County, Washington.

on Vancouver Lake

The trailhead on this map is in the middle of Vancouver Lake, so it's better to just go to the park by the lake and do an out -and-back from there. A lot of the trail meanders through a deciduous forest of cottonwood and alder, a cool and pleasant walk on a hot day that ends suddenly in a swampy area.

Was very steep in the beginning. leveled out pretty well! I picked the wrong day of the week. After about a half mile after pyramid rock I had to turn around. Got steep and slick. Even got a little snow!! It was fun. Just have to get to the top next time.

road biking

It is a really pretty ride. There is a really good view of Mt. Hood at the beginning of the hike. A side trail splits off about half way through and is non-paved route good for easy mountain biking.

This trail is pretty challenging but once you get to the top you would see the beauty of the nature. This trail is pretty steep in the beginning, I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys hiking
