Ascent Trip Report

Trailhead is located about 200 yds down the hill from the parking area. I took the rough trail that starts behind the gravel berm at the parking lot. This is sometimes called the Northside Trail. It is not maintained and is very difficult due to steepness, vegetation, and route finding issues. I do not recommend it. I came back down the regular trail. Lots of trains rolling through the Gorge on both sides of the river.
