Wonderful walk after lunch with our two dogs. Shaded paved and not many people on the trail. Great parking for our truck and trailer and a small $5 fee for use. Bathrooms at the start of the trail and a picnic area. Walked 3 miles total and the views were amazing over the River.

paved, mostly cyclists, a nice overlook on short, sunny, 2.2 mile out and back to tunnels.

One of our favorite bike rides in the Gorge ☺️ We walk it now and then too!

One of my favorite jog/walk areas in Hood River. Wonderful views and easy inclines.

Gorgeous is one word to describe this trail! The views of the Columbia River are breathtaking! The trail is wide and paved from start to finish! Most of the time the whir of traffic below is nonexistent due to the beautiful trees that serve as a natural sound barrier. When the vehicle noise is present, it makes me appreciate the opportunity to break away from life and enjoy God’s creation that much more.

Make sure to stop by the Portland Womens Forum State Park. It overlooks the most beautiful part

Pretty trail, beautiful views of Mosier that you don’t normally see.

Great trail for family bike ride- although be prepared for some hills! We started at the west trailhead, closer to hood river, and bikes to the east trailhead and back- about 9 miles total. Nice views and although it was busy, never felt too crowded.

Really pretty trail essentially in people’s back yard. The trail has some good elevation gains but is quick and offers a great view from the top. It was most dry with few flowers when I went. I’d love to see it during the proper season. Lots of squirrels running about in the brush dart past to say hello. The trailhead isn’t well marked. It’s a small pull off by the east side of the bridge on the map. Once parked you can find it by walking across the street and up the hill until you find the trail dedication.

I went on a hiking hiatus but decided to explore the Gorge for hiking opportunities. This trail is 9 miles out and back (18 miles), and I could only complete half. The trail is flat and paved and you are more likely to see cyclists than hikers. Excellent views of the Columbia River and local landscape. When I'm feeling more adventurous, I'll come back to complete the full trip.

Great hike on a sunny and hot Saturday. Few people, short, steep climb along switchbacks up to the plateau. Little shade, but the swimming hole was oh so refreshing on the way down. Watch out for poison oak.

Hiked on 5/31/19, sunny afternoon, low 80’s. Trail was mostly dry and somewhat dusty, not heavily trafficked as it was about 1pm on a Friday, maybe 10 total people on the trail at various stages of completion. Wildflowers still out but the yellow daisy like flower was waning. Interesting little cemetery at the beginning of the trail followed by a decent waterfall. From there it was all uphill with switchbacks and 3 sets of stairs. Beautiful blue wildflowers everywhere. At the top there was a nice view west down the river toward Hood River. If you squared down you could get a picture of wildflowers in the foreground on the plateau that would block the views of I-84 and the river/mountains in the background. Grime the top it was more switchbacks downhill. We didn’t do the loop at the end as it didn’t seem to have any better views than what we saw. I’m sure there’s an explanation but there were concrete pads on this this section of the trail that looked big enough to be a foundation for a small building, but what was there is a mystery to me. At the end of the trail, right at the start of the loop there were rows of concrete “sidewalks” with gorgeous yellow buttercup flowers with some roses interspersed. Again, a mystery but an unexpected surprise. No shade but it was somewhat windy and the cool breeze was welcome. Pet peeve: lots of offtrail paths and cutting of switchbacks despite the repeated signs to stay on path. The cutting of switchbacks in particular are causing erosion problems. Stay on path people! Anyway, gave it 3 stars because it was good but nothing really great.

Beautiful and a perfect quick afternoon hike in the Oregon Gorge. Only saw 5 people on the way up! Sunny and windy. Trail was well marked and easy to follow. Definitely lots of bugs with the dry weather. Parking is very limited. End of wild flower season but there were still lots of beauties!

very pretty, but the highway, train, and houses kill the vibe a bit.

Nice Easy Hike!!! Amazing View Of The Columbia River !

Crowded and narrow trail. But beautiful

It was a beautiful hike. Not crowded at all. I of course went on a weekday. It was hot and not a lot of shade. Important to take a hat and lots of sunscreen. The wild flowers are all in bloom. A must do if haven’t yet. It’s an easy hike.

May 2019. Very pretty at the top, excellent unobstructed view of the gorge and lots of super pretty wildflowers all over the place (signs say don’t pick them FYI... but the rules don’t apply to SOME people I guess). Trail up is super dusty, wear crappy sneaks or hiking boots. Trail also can be a little tight in some areas as you zig zag up the steep hill to the top. Parking is side of the road, and can be hard to come by, so you may need to additionally hike to the trailhead from wherever you can find a spot.

This is a great easy trail right now for the wildflowers. It is mostly exposed but there is some intermittent shade near the top and it was pretty windy. Saw a few snakes today.

Great little hike with awesome views of the Gorge. The trail can be a bit narrow and rocky.

Gorgeous trail walk today! The wildflowers are in bloom, pictures don’t do them justice. The trail was dusty (watch your step coming down, you could slip on the dirt/rocks) and there’s not any shade during the toughest climb of the walk. But overall I loved this scenic little breath of fresh air (4/30/19, temp 70 ish). Porta potties available near the public lot, but they didn’t have TP.

Great views, steady trail with minimal rocks and the wild flowers were beautiful. Nice incline and we will definitely visit again. It starts right after the white bridge in town if you’re coming east.
