Hiking The Columbia River Gorge (Falcon Guides)

"A short, but uphill, climb to a lookout beneath the powerlines. Wauna Viewpoint is a common–sense alternative to actually ascending Wauna Point. It has one major drawback: the powerlines. There’s no getting around it, the view is just not as pretty with the powerlines. This trail is similar to the one to Buck Point on the Ruckel Ridge Trail, but offers a slightly better view of Bonneville Dam and Table Mountain." Read more

Although there is a fair amount of poison oak at the start of the trail, the combination of some good uphill parts, and a terrific view (albeit you are under the powerlines) makes this a nice warm-up hike for the season. We went during some light mist / rain and the trail held up.
