“Great views of the Columbia River Gorge.”— Jackie Clark
Drawn by the dramatic balsamroot blooms in May and June, crowds flock to this popular trail on weekends during the spring. On a clear day, the views from the top are spectacular! Mt. Hood to the south and Mount St. Helens to the northwest. Loop opportunity with Augspurger Trail #4407 which shares the same trailhead.
If you are not up for the whole run, but would still like great views, there is a viewpoint a mile from the top, perfect for a picnic.
However, since you've come this far, continuing that last mile will bring you to an open, breezy meadow. No matter the time of the year, you'll always greet fellow runners at the top thanks to the great access of this trailhead.
