With a trailhead in the Columbia River Gorge, this mountain offers wonderful views of the deep cut of the Columbia as it slices through the Cascades. This is a popular trail that offers great views and a pleasant trail experience—wildflowers grace the forest meadows and clearings, and wildlife roams the area.

I believe that the trail is actually 3.8 miles on the sign, so 3.8 * 2 = 7.6 miles round trip. Just wanted the hard-working folks at Trails.com would want to know!
