The Dalles Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Unique views of the eastern gate of the Columbia River Gorge can be had here, but more importantly, you can immerse yourself in the natural desert world that Lewis and Clark encountered as they passed along the Columbia.
This route leads hikers past a picturesque waterfall and through fields of wildflowers—including white biscuit root, yellow bells, salt-and-pepper lomatium, chokecherry and serviceberry, and a plethora of mock orange. Horsethief Lake State Park, also known as Dalles Mountain Ranch State Park, offers great experiences in the desert country east of the Columbia River Gorge."
