Mitchell Point Professional Review and Guide

"The craggy edifice of Mitchell Point is a familiar landmark that rises directly above Interstate 84 west of Hood River. Many people drive past this promontory on their way to other hikes and are tantalized by the prospect of finding a way to the top.

But those hikers are usually disappointed, because few guidebooks discuss the peak and no map shows a trail to the summit. More determined individuals who vow to find a way regardless of the difficulties discover a good trail all the way to the view-packed summit."

"A prominent rocky knoll along the Columbia River just west of Hood River, Mitchell Point was once the site of a beautiful five-window tunnel on the old Columbia River Highway, modeled after Switzerland’s Axenstrasse. In 1966 this engineering marvel was destroyed to make way for i-84."
