Angel’s Rest hike, Columbia Gorge, OR


The Angel’s Rest hike in Oregon (not to be confused with the one in Zion NP) is a beautiful hike to a fabulous viewpoint.  It isn’t that long at 2.5 miles, but it is all uphill…. 1,500 ft. altitude gain.  And, it is rated moderate because much of the trail is quite rocky.  But, if you wear good hiking shoes, its not a bad walk at all.

Of course, there was a waterfall- in this case, Coopey Creek
