There was some garbage and cigarette butts at the top - really people, this is outrageous. Nice day with good views. It is worth the quick roadside trip to the top. Did some mossy sport climbing on the NW side.
Tagged this one with my 13-year-old brother in law. Nice views, crazy trail.
Couldn't resist tagging another "volcano" on my way home from a trip that included climbing Mt. Adams and rafting the White Salmon river.
This was done while on a weekend getaway from PU. Nice views.
A late start for Hamilton led Emma Lee (new pooch) and I across the highway for this one. Fun and good for the social skills, lots of friendly people and other dogs. Watched some climbers, a lot more exciting way up! Looking for an experienced partner, and trying to figure out how to climb with a pup on a leash? :)
This was a nice little hike using the northwest route. The weather was mild and partly cloudy with a breeeze at the summit. Kept a quick pace to the top and back for some good cardio.
Hiked up to the top with my cousin Megan. Bringing the climbing shoes nest time.
Busted up the trail in about 13 minutes. The wind was allegedly near 60MPH at times. Poor Skinny John blew away. He's probably back in Portland by now.
With Ryan and Leigh
Stopped here with my family on our way back to Spokane. Nice little hike with great views. The trail itself is a beautiful piece of engineering. Wouldn't mind doing this again.
Hiked this trail near the end of my first year in college. There was a guy on top offering hits from his bong!
Raced with some friends to the top after Hamilton. A fun one, but felt guilty not bringing my kids!
Went and tagged this after doing Dog Mtn, about 35 min round trip. Winds of up to 50 mph on the summit.
Climbed on a great day while traveling through the Gorge with some friends. I really liked the handrails built along the side and felt like I was on a set of the game Myst at some points!
Checked out North Bonneville during Gorge Days and decided to hike the trail with a couple of friends. Awesome views all along the upper half of the trail.
I climbed Beacon Rock early in the morning. Few people out hiking that day. It was a nice little peak with great views of the Columbia River Gorge.
Second time up the trail for me, first for my son. A very windy day.
Hiked this for the third time today. I encourage non-hikers I know to give this rock a try, its really a unique hike.
Crowded trail in summer.
My first climb up this was in 1977 with my son in a backpack when he was about 9 months old. I've climbed it many times since, and taken my younger children on quite a few hikes up this. It makes a great quick, "getting back into shape" workout, and I can usually do it in about an hour, Photos included.
