Wild Horse Monument Reviews
My wife and I stopped at this on our way to Blue Lake and admired beauty of the sculptures and the view. Getting up to this is a little challenging as it is steep but it is well worth it. more »

'Grandfather Cuts Loose the Ponies' is a sculpture by the artist David Govedare and shows 15 life-size and very much alive-looking horses on the Hill. This place offers a superb view of the Wanapum dam in the Columbia River and the vantage bridge. The dam and Lake are named after the Wanapum Indians, who populated the Valley already in prehistoric times.
Honestly, we did not even notice the Wild Horse Monument. We did however LOVE the view of the Columbia River. It was a great place to stretch our legs and take in the view. There was crazy strong wind... more »
It's just a quirky stop off interstate 90 with steep hike up to the metal horses and a terrific view of the Columbia River Valley and the highway. It is not necessary to climb the hill for the view. It free, so if you have the time or need a break, it's a worthwhile, quick stop.
We stopped at a rest stop and noticed the horses up on a hill. Didn't go up there so I couldn't tell you about the monument itself. It was visible from the rest stop and the road.
Awesome place to check out and stretch your legs. Make the short hike to the top to see the ponies up close. You'll also have fantastic views of the Columbia River!
Pretty good views of the Columbia river and of course the wild horse monument. For me unfortunately the paths to the top are too steep and are coveted in loose stores. The path that goes to the right is slightly better but still steep. Do not try this if you have any mobility issues because coming down is more dangerous because of the loose stones.
Nice place for a short hike and a photo opportunity with the horse sculptures and view down to the Columbia river.
