The beginning of the hike is easy, until you get to the turnoff point to go up the hill to Munra Point. At this point you will be hiking up a steep and rocky hill, and will need to use caution as injuries and fatalities have occurred. Expect a long and narrow path ahead until you reach the top. There might be a lot of times when you are using your hands to climb up the rugged trail. The view is amazing beyond belief and is worth the hike. This hike is for experienced hikers or thrill seekers looking for a challenge.

Pretty views at the top, but fairly strenuous. I am not an experience hiker by any means, and it was doable, but I thought about turning back several times. You have to scramble on your hands and knees and climb up rocks. Definitely a hike you should plan to take your time on. I started the hike at around 5 and ended up hiking the last bit in the dark. Very rewarding, but be careful and be aware it is a challenge.

Amazing views BUT this is not a hike for everyone. Extremely challenging and would not recommend for anyone who is not prepared or experienced. Some parts are super sketchy in that you are on all fours scrambling up loose rock, dirt, and gravel and then literally sliding down on your butt using tree roots to assist. At one point while I was sliding down, the hiker behind and above me hit a patch of loose rocks that came tumbling down hitting a few of us below. There are points that you will be rock climbing, so be cautious of how and what you pack. When you get to the top you definitely see incredible views, but to be honest I've seen comparable views on much less strenuous hikes in the gorge. This is a physical and mental challenge so if you're looking for that in your hiking experience this will be the hike for you.

Parking is pretty far away from the trailhead, but it's no big deal. The hike was one of the steepest I've done in a while, so wear good hiking shoes and make sure to bring lots of water. The view from the top is incredible! One of my favorite hikes.

Started this hike at the Elowah Falls trailhead and made our way to the Munra Point trail. Great hike with a healthy dose of scrambling and uphill.

One of the best hikes in the gorge. It is more scrambling than a hike. More than half of the path is scrambling. It is challenging, but the view on top is worth all the effort. Lot of elevation gat in the last mile and a half. Lot of scrambling. Coming down was more challenging. Was on all fours. Not for the faint hearted. As somebody pointed out, when in doubt keep to the right while climbing up.

super amazing hike! but lots of scrambling on the way down. which means go slow. This is not a trail to think oh im just gonna go up and back as fast as possible. Stop and smell the roses. and be safe!

It's very unclear where you turn off the Gorge trail to get to Munra Peak. But once you do it is pretty steep with some very challenging areas. The varied terrain makes it interesting and fun but be prepared to climb loose ground, boulders, light rock climbing and ultimately a narrow ridge. The views are breathtaking at the top with two long ridges to choose from. One juts out north toward the Columbia river, the other is pointed east.
