First mile on lower loop is asphalt and the entire top (return) loop trail is a dirt road with deep tire ruts. Best route is lower out and back. Check the Othello weather and skip if wind is forecast.


Really-really easy hike. Beautiful views of the bluffs, Hawks, ground critters, and the Columbia River. Little windy up there so make sure you bring a hat and layer up. Wdnt recommend this hike in the summer as there's no shade and it's BAKIN' up there.

Very enjoyable hike. Choose springtime hiking as it gets warm later in the year. Bring plenty of water.

Windy hike . Wish there were more trail markers but we figured it out . Saw a rattle snake and it's early April so watch out . Really pretty views . Not a very difficult hike though . 8.2 miles out and back

Easy hike along the top and bottom of the bluffs. I started from the north TH and worked my way down along the river and then back along different ridge trails. Great views of the white bluffs. I like hiking the sand dunes that the nearby north slope trail offers but the south slope trail is also great with several trail options to explore.
