In March and May, thick carpets of Western Basalmroot and lupines blanket the gently rolling grassy hills. The hike also features grand views of the Columbia River Gorge along the Vista Loop Trail.
You will need a Washington Discover pass to park at the trailhead. Start at the Crawford Oaks Trailhead on Hwy 14. Hike this hike clockwise to avoid the crowds and to save the best scenery for last. The last leg of the hike features views of the Gorge.
