"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

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.

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." Read more
