A fun and interesting hike for the whole family. The parking area is located along Washington Hwy 14, so the access couldn't be easier. HOWEVER, at this moment, the state of Washington has decided to charge you a day-fee for parking and enjoying this area.

The trail is "fastened" literally to the side of this unusual rock sitting on the banks of the Columbia River. The views from the top are excellent. Caution is common sense on the narrow trail.
