Syncline to White Salmon (Over Bingen) This trail gives epic view of the Columbia River gorge as well as Mount Hood. You start with favorite mountain biking spot for locals and continue thru both public and private land. Between April and October, you might encounter cows at the mid section. No worries, they are nice, but you can not bring your dog between April and October. Even on rainy days the first half of the trail will be fine to hike, and if it is really coming down, just go until you hit the cow grazing area and turn back.

Beautiful hike. The trail is not it marked very well. the group took the second entrance to the trail it was very steep and a little rocky. I took my dog off his leash because it was too difficult to hold him and climb up. we did cross a "bridge" that was just a board that was laid down across what looked like a flooded stream, it only supported one of us at a time, my dog didn't like it. Once we reached the top of the summit it was nice, not too windy and stunning views. we followed old ranch road trail back down which was easier then the first part of our hike. Lots of snow run off, so expect to get your feet wet! I would wait til late summer to do it again to make sure to miss ALL the snow run off.

If you start in White Salmon in the am and stage at the river, you can pause at the high point bench and ck the wind. If the wind is up, you zip down and hit the water to wdsf or kite. You're going downhill in the arid section which can get hot on a summer day. a
