NOTE: The lower section of the trail is closed from February to July 15th for Falcon mating season. This is a nice hike along the north shore of the Columbia River with great views. This loop trail will bring you to a great viewpoint over the Columbia at about 1,200 feet then drop you down to the very edge of the river along fields of lava rocks and by basalt towers. You'll pass a waterfall on the way to the Cape Horn Road that will bring you back to the parking lot as well.

wind was crazy! the end of the "loop" ends on a road. head left, up the road, to meet back to the parking lot. walking in pavement for just under a mile.
