  • It was very hot and windy the day we stopped at Horsethief Lake to see the petroglyphs. The trail with the petroglyphs "in situ" can only be done as a guided tour with a ranger and was not offered whe...  more »

  • Make sure you're here in late April to see the peaking of the wildflowers. There's a couple hillsides where you can Tak a trail straight through thousands of blossomed lupin, balsam root and several others for colorful flowers that I have not identified. The trails have been worked on extensively, and the entire loop is perfect for a half-day walk. If you are looking for the flowers, don't skip military road. That's the best spot on the hill.
  • If I'm not mistaken, there are suppose to be petroglyphs here. They The exhibit was closed due to vandalism. :( The US government has not treated the Native Americans well in the region. Just research "The Kenniwick Man" as an example.
  • A good place to hike in early spring. Other times of the year it is dry and hot.
  • Come here early in the morning when the balsam root and lupine are in bloom. The meadowlarks here pose nicely with the yellow flowers. You can enjoy views of Mount Hood from here.
  • Beautiful rolling hills with mostly Balsamroot and Lupine...with views of the Columbia River.
