Follow a twisting trail of ramps and stairways to the top of the largest basaltic monolith in the northwest. Then take in breathtaking views of the Columbia River and its striking gorge from this 848-foot core of an ancient volcano. Named by Lewis and Clark in 1805, the rock was bought by wealthy engineer and amateur botanist Henry J. Biddle in 1915, and he constructed this marvel of a trail. After his death, his children gave the rock to the state for a new park in 1932.
