Klickitat Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The klickitat Trail winds 31 miles from the Columbia River through spectacular canyons to the klickitat Valley—a high plateau between the golden Columbia Hills and piney Simcoe Mountains. This hike explores the trail’s western reaches along the wild and scenic klickitat River. Follow the churning glacial-born river above a basalt chasm, past whitewater rapids, and below a flank of oak-studded hills that burst with brilliant wildflowers in the spring"

"As one of the most bird-rich and least-birded portions of Washington, the corridor along the banks of the Klickitat River is a natural attraction for adventurous bird-watchers. Up to 290 species of birds and 176 species of breeding birds can be seen in Klickitat County, and many of them, including the hard-to-find Acorn Woodpecker, Ash-throated Flycatcher, and Lesser Goldfinch, can be seen around the Klickitat River. Habitats: Lowland riparian, wetland, freshwater marsh, prairie, mixed forest.

Specialty birds: Greater Scaup; Golden and Bald Eagles; Northern Goshawk; Swainson’s Hawk; Peregrine Falcon; Chukar; Northern Pygmy-Owl; Calliope and Rufous Hummingbirds; Acorn, Lewis’s, and Pileated Woodpeckers; Red-naped Sapsucker; Hammond’s, Dusky, and Pacific-slope Flycatchers; Cassin’s Vireo; Western Bluebird."
