A steep climb to one of the best viewpoints in the Columbia River Gorge.
The Mitchell Point Trail begins at a rest area off I-84 and gains over 1,000 feet of elevation in a little over one mile.
The hard work is worth it though. The final climb to the summit is strewn with wildflowers and provides long views up and down the Gorge.
A very pleasant way to spend an hour or so.
aaahhhh – one of my favorite places!
Now if they would just repair the bridges on the Wygant Peak Trail, one could do both ascents in the same day from the same parking area. In the meantime, you are spot on. Mitchell is hard to beat in the springtime.
