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 views of the gorge. Crowded with people that don't have etiquette but it's worth the trip.

Great hike, well maintained. The people on the hike were a trip! Passed four different parties that had music playing out of their backpack and no right of way etiquette. My wife and I named the trail, the I 5 of the falls.

All uphill and a little bit of a rocky path but the view is well worth it!

Great hike, although I believe there are better. It's a fairly steady, steep-ish climb to the top with not much to see as you climb (although there are breaks through the trees that keep you motivated). The views from the top are amazing. However, the crowds can be a bit annoying, and we were surrounded by several groups of young, loud, obnoxious late teens and early twenties groups who were blaring their hipster music from portable speakers. Not exactly why I try to get out in nature. It's a shame, because this would be a great day hike minus 90% of the crowds.

If you want even more breathtaking views, fewer people, and a similar distance, try the Silver Star hike (Ed's Trail). You'll never want to return to Angel's Rest.

This hike was an amazing workout. We did it at noon in July. Fair amount of people. We hiked up to devils rest, were a little confused where exactly the view point was? There was a little section off of the trail that had an amazing overlook available but the very top was just a rock with trees surrounding, no view. Did this for the workout!
