WOLFrisingHeartbreak above the gorge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2016


Climbed on a cloudy morning that became a scorching afternoon. Maddie and I left from the hot springs resort and summited via the Heartbreak Ridge route. It was quite steep, and felt like climbing rather than hiking a trail in some places. After checking out the cliffs, we descended via the alternate route with the blasted hillside. The blackberries at the bottom made it all worth it!

It was steep, especially on the descent, but well worth the effort for the killer views of the Gorge. I tried to stand as close as possible to the edge, but the sheer cliffs made me a bit weak-kneed. :-)

bellinghamclimbernice day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2013


Hiked from the Aldrich Butte trailhead, and made a nice 5-hour loop out of it. Great weather and views, but I wasn't thrilled with some of the scree fields toward the top. A nice day hike though!

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2013
Started from the Bonneville Trailhead and went up the Tamanous trail (the longer version of the route). This goes through some generally boring clearcut. You're not missing anything on this part, and your legs will thank you on the way back down...

I hiked to the top as part of a conditioning hike with the Mazamas Basic Climber Education Program (BCEP) class. Great program, and very glad to be back this year as an assistant instructor.

Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2011


Got to the trail head at Bonneville Hot Springs and the clouds were just starting to break. Went up heartbreak ridge and reached the summit in an hour and thirty minutes. Pass several groups on the way up and then after taking pictures headed down to Aldrich Butte.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2009


Did not expect such a work out. Beautiful day and was about eighty degrees. One of the best viewpoints of the gorge i have seen so far! The walk back was a long one and experienced a few blisters on the trip.

outdoorgirlSouth Trail/ Heartbreak Ridge Trail
Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2008


A muddy, but peaceful walk through the woods, passing over the creeks, even saw the sun a little. Took the South Trail from the Bonneville Trailhead. Once on the Heartbreak Ridge Trail, ran into snow. Above the cliffs, some holes were waist deep! Not a day for pictures, but definitely want to come back in the summer time. In our excitement to get back to the car. we accidentally took the trail down to Bonneville Hot Springs. I am sure the dog and I looked like homeless people, soaked and covered in mud, walking back up HWY 14 to the car!

One of the best Gorge viewpoints. Lots of opportunities for exploring the summit plateau.

bmwboarder7Jumping Switchbacks  Sucess!


It was one of my first hikes with much elevation change. The trail was quite steep, with many switchbacks. On the way down we ran (we were younger...) and were using trees to turn us down the switchbacks. Quite a fun day hike.

BSPclimberVariation of South trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2007


Went with me BCEP class, we parked at the hot springs and took a brushy trail that connects with the jeep road, then the PCT. The last mile or so to the top was quite fun. Descended to the north and looped around to the west, I don't recommend it, there was quite a bit of blowdown and brush and is a couple of miles longer. Probably 10 miles RT. Overall a great hike, would be better descending the way we came, but still fun.

I climbed Table Mtn. with my venture crew in preparation for a backpacking trip. Hot day, arduous climb. The views were well worth it.

Climbed up the mountain as a conditioning hike with the Mazamas. There was a lot of snow on top, and a great day to be up there!

awilsondcRoute Climbed: Main Trail via Bonneville Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2006


I decided to take this route over the hot springs route to get a little more exercise. I was succesful... the last couple of miles really wore me out, but I've felt worse. I ran into many, many groups between the trailhead and the first lake, but only a couple after that. Not too bad for a Saturday. Lots of slugs on the trail too, (ewwwww!) and I think I steped on a couple while jogging for a couple of miles on the way back. [SLIP---] The views from the summit were pretty good, but a little cloudy. Overall a great hike. I've done this one several times now, and I've got to say that on a clear day this peak has probably the best views of any of the major Gorge peaks along I-84. Truly spectacular.
