Beautiful Views
This is a great, easy-going hike with great river views, especially in fall and winter. It is one of the rare Gorge hikes that follows the Columbia River for most of its length, with views at either end of the loop.
 
Please note: There is a clothing-optional beach at the east end of the path.
