Good standby hike for when we need a quick jolt of Gorge love. Almost a dozen switchbacks have you gaining elevation fast and the views are spot on. Definitely heed the warnings and go early as it becomes a nightmare crowd-wise, especially in summer.

The most popular hike in our area-- and for good reason! It's gorgeous, falls, a stunning bridge, and a few animals along the way too (mostly birds). It's a quick, easy hike that you can't miss.

Parking is horrendous has it is a tourist attraction. Nice hike on a paved surface with about 12 switchbacks to get to the top.
