Angel's Rest is one of the most popular hikes in the Columbia Gorge and affords gorgeous views of the Columbia River from it's summit. You'll hike through varied terrain, including lush green forest, a barren area from the 1991 forest fire, as well as pass by a waterfall.

This short hike is well worth the effort. Plan to arrive early on spring and summer weekends as it can get very crowded.

Activity Notes

This is a great warm up for the new season. This is a beautiful hike through the forested gorge that opens up to expansive views at the summit with plenty of space to eat and relax for a well earned rest before making our descent.
