It’s an easy trail if you are a regular hiker with medium intensity. The view from the top is great and the rock formations are lovely. Do walk around the circle at the top to get different views and angles now that you’ve climbed to...More

This relatively easy trail is giving a good view over The Valley. It is a short excursion to fill a day and great to stretch your legs on that one hour max walk.

Nothing to see on the way up. The view at the top is no match for a view atop a hill a few miles/kilometers south on Highway 93, where there's a sign identifying Lake Columbia.

We came last year and loved it. So came with more family this year. Not too strenuous with young children. Hard to push a stroller.

Close to town and an easy hike on a well established trail. Great vies from atop the Hoodoos of the Columbia river valley.

The trail starts out steep with out many views. About 30 minutes up there are great views of the river lake and mountains beyond. As for the hoodoos you are on top of them.

Yes I think they would do ok on this but I recommend holding on to them at the top because there is no safety railing or nets to catch someone if they fall. Also note that we didn't really see any wildlife(birds,squirrels... More

Head south from Fairmont on HWY 93/95 about 1.5 miles. Turn right onto Westside Road and watch for sign and parking lot on left
