Munra Point

Munra Point Professional Review and Guide

"The Columbia River Gorge is the lowest pathway through the Oregon Cascades. As such, it allows remarkable access to a wide range of hiking, climbing, and scrambling opportunities. The gorge is full of undulating ridges, vertical cliff faces, and high plateaus. These are all built on Columbia River basalts, multiple layers of rich dark basalt. Munra Point is the remote horn, which sits at the north end of a long ridge between Moffett and Tanner Creeks.

If you follow the long ridge south, you reach the protected Bull Run Watershed, which supplies Portland with its drinking water. Scramblers will enjoy this short but difficult scramble up a series of rocky, exposed basalt outcrops leading to a uniquely shaped viewpoint. In spring there are abundant wildflowers blooming throughout the forest and on the upper slopes."
