Fall is a favorite time for hikers to hit the trails to discover the fabulous fall colors of the Columbia River Gorge, near Portland, Oregon. The City of Stevenson, Washington recently published an awesome article about the wonderful Fall colors that hikers can experience from The Cape Horn Trail, in the Columbia River Gorge, that we wanted to share with you.
The Cape Horn Trail is one of the newest hiking trails in Skamania County, featuring gorgeous views, rocky crags, streams, two waterfalls and fabulous fall colors. The entire loop is made up of two segments separated by Highway 14. The upper trail climbs from the trailhead, reaching a 1,300-foot high point along Pioneer Ridge and at the Nancy Russell Viewpoint. Both offer outstanding views of trees changing color all the way down the gorge.
