A moderate-rated hike off highway 30 that leads to awesome views of the Columbia River & Gorge. Starting in a fern-filled forest, the trail climbs uphill for 0.6 mile before reaching the top of Coopey Falls, a 150 to 175 foot horsetail waterfall, and the footbridge crossing the creek. Continuing on, the trail begins to switchback uphill for 1.6 miles before reaching the ridge crest. Turn left at a junction to a spectacular gorge viewpoint. Use extreme caution at the steep cliff edge. Some nice flower features of this hike are the wildflower displays (which peaks in May) of blue-eyed grass, star-flowered Smiliacina, and trillium at lower levels. Also you get a grand view of the Gorge once you reach the top. There is even a bench to rest yourself on that overlooks the entire area.
Great view most of the way up, a rare treat. Takes 45min to the peak, 30min down. I recommend going to devils rest as well
Go early to find parking and avoid as much of the crowds headed to Angels Rest as you can... Elevation is pretty accurate, Fenix3 logged ~3400ft of gain over 10.45 miles. Lots of mud and some technical sections. Excellent Vistas! Nice run.
Did this hike back in November and it was such a beautiful hike! So much greenery and an amazing view at the top. Definitely recommend doing this one!
Extremely muddy. Lots of foot traffic. Nice views but very windy in certain spots. I wouldn't say it was a hard hike, more on the higher end of moderate.
