Ascent Trip Report

Guiding some friends for a Columbia Gorge trifecta - a peak, waterfalls, and 360 degree view. If you can only do one hike in the Gorge, this one has to be strongly considered.

We took the spur trail overlooking Hardy Falls on the way up and the other to Pool of the Winds on the return, which account for a portion of the extra gain.
