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.

Did this first thing in the morning while my daughter was still asleep in her carrier. Well worth her reaction to waking up to the view. An enjoyable hike any time of day if you are an early riser watching the sun splash it's rays from the top is a favorite experience.
