View of Mosier from the top of the switchback section

Located off the scenic Highway 30 in the quaint town of Mosier, this trail is 3.5 miles round trip from the parking lot to the top of the cliff. It is rated as moderate on the trail sign due to a section of steep switchbacks and stairs that gain a little elevation quickly. The top of the switchbacks looks out over the town and local vineyards while the viewpoint from the cliff overlooks the Columbia River. From there you can view the ferries and windsurfers and maybe witness a salmon catch! This trail is perfect for an easy afternoon hike…just beware of yellow jackets under some of the rocks!
