"Spectacular views of the eastern Columbia River Gorge await the hiker as he or she climbs this strenuous route, high above the Washington (north) side of the river. Much of the way you ascend along the upper edge of the Coyote Wall Syncline (cliff). From February through early May, almost the entire area may be a flower garden." Read more

"A dramatic fold of sheer basalt cliffs, stately oak forests, and rolling open meadows that radiate with wildflower brilliance in the spring, the Coyote Wall howls to be hiked. Roam along the edge of the lofty wall, watching for thermal-riding raptors and nesting swallows. Amble across fields of dreamy blossoms. And scan the gorge spread out below from the golden Columbia Hills in the east to the lofty cloud-catching emerald peaks in the west." Read more

"Standing at the trailhead, looking up at Coyote Wall, you might feel a bit intimidated. Fear not, for the way is gradual and the work rewarding. Just walk around the gate, and follow the old road along Locke Lake and eventually around the base of the wall itself. Turn left onto Trail #4426 and immediately you’re faced with numerous trails. Mountain bikers zip through here in every direction, but our path is always the one to the left and uphill. Follow #4426 until, just under a mile out, it runs into Little Moab Trail #4429. Take #4429 and follow it to, and then up and along, the top of the wall. Just less than a mile up from the junction with #4426, the trail leaves the wall and you reach a junction where the #4426 comes back in. Here, you have a choice to make: high, medium, or low."

One of my favorite hikes in the Gorge. I only went to the top of Hamilton Mountain once and found the summit to be so covered with brush that there was no view. Now I always stop at the saddle about two miles in to eat lunch with my feet almost dangling over the cliff. Great view of Bonneville dam there. This trail can get a little busy on the weekend, but most people don't go past the waterfalls. If anyone has been to the summit lately, let us know if any of the brush has been removed to allow a view.

A decent hike if you're looking for some great views of Beacon Rock and the Columbia River Gorge from the Washington side. The hike is easy up to Hardy Falls, then it gets a little tougher up the final couple miles to Mount Hamilton (not too many people go all the way up, judging by the trail conditions). All in all though it's a good day hike with lots of stuff to see and do.
