Tom Mccall Point Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Climb to a rounded grassy summit on a peak honoring one of Oregon’s conservation champions. The only thing better than the far-flung views from along this hike are the flowers. They carpet the peak’s open slopes, accent its abrupt ridges, and decorate its oak and pine groves in a multitude of brilliant colors. A nature Conservancy preserve, more than two hundred species of plants thrive here, including several endemic to the Columbia gorge."
--Craig Romano, Day Hiking Columbia River Gorge (The Mountaineers Books).
"Tom McCall Preserve at Rowena is in a different world from most of the hikes in this book. It’s a glimpse into central Oregon, a land of wide-open vistas, grass blowing in the nearly constant wind, and semiarid forests of oak and ponderosa pine. It also boasts panoramic vistas of the Columbia and Mounts Adams and Hood, and more than 300 species of plants, some of them unique to the Columbia River Gorge."
