Description

At 2438 feet above sea level, Hamilton Mountain looms above (and just east of) Beacon Rock. In addition to two waterfalls and fine Gorge views, it is a wonderful place to see mid-Spring wildflowers.

Directions

From Portland, take Interstate 84 East to Exit 43 (Cascade Locks). (If you are approaching from the east, take Exit 45 and proceed two miles through town.) Cross the Columbia River over the historic Bridge of the Gods ($1 toll for passenger cars). After crossing the bridge, turn left onto Highway 14 and proceed seven miles. You will see Beacon Rock towering ahead as you approach the state park, which is located near mile marker 35. Turn right into the campground, and drive uphill to the first right, which is the trailhead parking lot.
