Coyote Wall Doubletrack Professional Reviews and Guides

"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."

"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."

"Let’s say it’s springtime, at least according to the calendar, but Portland is socked-in and wet. Go east, young hiker!—to the high and dry lands of the Columbia River Gorge, where flowers bloom, birds croon, and Coyote Wall looms."

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.
